FCCQ for Vaccine Passport to re-open business and travel

The Federation of Quebec Chambers of Commerce (FCCCQ) on Tuesday demanded that Quebec quickly keep its vaccine passport to reopen stores and hold major events.

“Our festivals and other major events are part of the face of Quebec, especially in the summer. We must do everything we can to make them stand together and support the organizers,” said FCCQ President and CEO Charles Milliard Underline.

Under the influence of vaccines, this evidence can be granted and used after receiving the first dose.

Israel model, reproduction

The FCCQ believes the Israeli model will inspire Health and Social Services Minister Christian Dubey, who is examining the evidence with the QR code.

Called the “Green Card”, the app allows vaccinated people to enjoy social activities that have been restricted since the outbreak, with dinners with friends at restaurants.

“We have the technology to keep the tool being used here and proven to work elsewhere. In addition to speeding up the reopening of some businesses, especially in restaurant dining rooms, vaccination proof can also help bring workers back to our city centers, which are still largely neglected,” said Charles Milliard. .

Federal-regional harmony is needed

As the federal government is considering the possibility of creating a vaccine passport to travel abroad, the FCCC emphasizes the importance of ensuring that the Quebec vaccine passport is compatible with Ottawa.

“We all want to resume our operations as soon as possible, including the opportunity to travel […]. Closing our borders is detrimental to our trade and economy. The benefits of a vaccine passport are, therefore, far greater than its disadvantages, ”said Charles Milliard.
