When the Canadian government announced travel restrictions allowing only fully vaccinated people to travel, the Croatian and Polish communities in Canada expressed their dissatisfaction that caused a noticeable increase in the number of people buying one-way tickets to their homelands. Those leaving are mainly families with children who are dissatisfied with or oppose the restrictions. Among the departed are also those who expected to be fired or were fired from their jobs because of their unvaccinated status. Many Croatian and Polish unvaccinated or partially vaccinated international students are also leaving Canada since they are unable to go to colleges and universities and are studying now online from Croatia or Poland.
