Vaccination has begun in various parts of Canada.
We give priority to medical professionals and the elderly, and announce the future outlook for each state from time to time.

The British Columbia government has announced the second phase of vaccination against the new coronavirus. Telephone reservation start date is based on age, and proxy reservation is also possible.
90 years old and over (~ 1931) 3/8 ~
85-89 years old (1932-36 years old) 3/15-
80-84 years old (1937-1941) 3/22-
Indigenous people can make vaccination reservations if they are 65 years of age or older.
Two vaccinations are required, but the effect lasts from the first to four months, so the interval between the second dose is changed to 16 weeks so that as many people as possible can get the first dose. Due to changes in the inoculation schedule, administration to children under the age of 59 scheduled after July may be accelerated.

Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon Territory, has begun vaccination against the new coronavirus for all residents aged 18 and over.
In the past, priority was given to healthcare professionals, the elderly, and remote residents with poor medical facilities, but now adults can book vaccination dates by phone.

The last Wednesday of February is PinkShirtDay#PinkShirtDay .
A boy who went to school in a pink polo shirt at a high school in Nova Scotia in 2007 was terribly teased. Two senior boys who heard it handed out 50 pink T-shirts to their friends and protested silently with them the next day, which was the beginning of the anti-bullying movement.

What happened in a small town in eastern Canada has taken the wave of social media and is now spreading around the world as Pink Shirt Day @pinkshirtday. You can wear anything that is bright and conspicuous pink. This is a good opportunity to insist on the opposition to bullying. If you go out, please join us.

YOUR GUIDE TO WINTER HIKING IN BANFF NATIONAL PARK

Crisp air filters through your lungs as you climb, one step at a time, through the peace and quiet of the forest. Snow crunching underfoot, you make your way higher, then take a moment to look up. The view has opened up, revealing a sea of peaks blanketed in snow, shining brilliantly under a blue-bird sky.

It’s on winter days like this that sometimes the best way to experience Banff National Park is on your two feet. So, when the snow starts to fly, keep your hiking boots handy! With a few extra pieces of gear, you can comfortably venture to some of the same destinations as you can in the summertime.
