Chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said she expects travel restrictions will be relaxed somewhat for travellers who've been fully vaccinated.

Cumulatively, 4,49,87,004 persons in the same age-group across states and UTs have received their first dose and 8,95,517 have received their second dose since the start of phase-3 of the vaccination drive in the country.

US and Canadian business leaders have voiced increasing concern about the ban on non-essential travel in light of COVID-19 that was first imposed in March 2020 and renewed on a monthly basis since then.

The United States is ahead of Canada in terms of vaccination totals.

"What we're asking the federal government for is to communicate to people, Canadians, what their plan is on how we are going to allow for travel because it is important", Moe later said during a virtual news conference following the annual Western Premier's Meeting.

"As we are seeing from other countries where the Delta Variant has emerged, getting the population fully vaccinated is crucial for gaining and keeping the upper hand to reopen safely".

Non-essential travel into and out of Canada has been severely restricted since March 2020 in response to the pandemic, even though tens of thousands of people have crossed border points since then - majority essential workers such as commercial truck drivers.

The country is poised to receive more than 8 million COVID-19 vaccine doses this week thanks to a massive infusion of shots from Moderna and a revised delivery schedule.

Nearly two in three Canadians now have one dose of vaccine, but slightly more than one in 10 have both doses.

Canada is set to reach part of the first target - 75 per cent of eligible people having their first dose - sometime in the next 24 hours, and 20 per cent with both doses likely by Sunday. Only nine per cent of Canadians still say they will not get the vaccine under any circumstance.

In addition, Health Canada is launching the "Ask the Expert" initiative this week to provide answers about COVID-19 vaccination, so Canadians can make an educated choice, empowered by information from trusted sources.
