e-3409 (Civil and human rights)

Initiated by Robert Lacey from Edmonton, Alberta

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Section 6 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms secures the right of Canadians to move freely within Canada as well as in and out of Canada;
  • Participation in community, social, and economic life in Canada requires freedom of movement within and between communities, provinces, Canada and other jurisdictions;
  • Vaccine passports or certificates are being considered as a means of countering the spread of COVID-19 and its variants;
  • Proposed vaccine passports or certificates could make vaccination a requirement to move freely and participate fully in social, communal and economic life;
  • Vaccine passports or certificates could introduce discriminatory measures against persons who choose not to be vaccinated, or pressure people into being vaccinated who would otherwise be unwilling to do so;
  • Vaccine passports or certificates could impact different sectors of the economy (travel, tourism, hospitality for instance) and the quality of life of many Canadians and residents of Canada;
  • It is the sacred duty of the Government of Canada to guard against discrimination and guarantee the freedoms secured to Canadians.
We, the undersigned, citizens and resident of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1- Ensure that freedom of movement and participation in life in Canada is not contingent on being vaccinated or having a vaccine passport or certificate, and
2- Work with international partners and jurisdictions to enable the freest possible movement of Canadians abroad without the requirement of vaccination or of a vaccine passport or certificate.
