Under the Canadian Constitution, immunization is not mandatory. However, some provinces have regulations regarding proof of certain vaccines for school enrollment (with some exceptions).
The debate about whether or not parents should have to vaccinate their children has been raging on for decades. Should it be a parent’s choice? Should it be mandatory under federal law?
Many anti-vaccinators argue that vaccinations are the cause of health problems and risky side-effects.

Many high-profile people have given their take on the issue, including Mark Zuckerberg, Jim Carrey, and Alicia Silverstone.
