According to a new poll conducted by Research Co., two thirds of Canadians are in favour of implementing “vaccine passports” in an office setting. 

The online survey asked a representative national sample of Canadians on their opinion on “vaccine passports” as a requirement to return to the workplace. 

The study was conducted from November 8th to 10th. 

According to the online survey, 67% of Canadians think it is a “good idea” to implement COVID-19 “Proof of Vaccination” certificates for people to be able to work within an office. 

This isn’t the first time Research Co. has posed this question, however. In May 2021, only 52% of Canadians were in favour when asked the same question. In September 2021, this number grew to 63% and in October the result was almost two thirds of Canadians (67%). 

When accounting for age, 77% of Canadians aged 55 and over were in favour of implementing vaccine passports in the workplace. 66% of Canadians aged 35 to 54 were in favour and 59% were aged 18 to 34. 

British Columbia ranked as the province with the second highest support for the use of Proof of Vaccination certificates (70%), coming in behind Quebec (73%).
