In this Covid 19 pandemic, vagueness has turn blindness. Hahaha.
If you have a piece of land that can accommodate homestead/eco-village type life style, do not waste your money for immigration. Covid has changed things permanently and it is here to stay. The lifestyle humanity had before is not coming back, covid-19 is a health crisis but big business is also using it to its advantage which is a disadvantage for regular folks. Heavily regulated, industrialized and individualistic societies are doomed in my opinion. Population crisis is bigger than one could imagine, if population doesnt increase the system won't be able to sustain itself and it has to shrink. We will never establish a sustainable system because we are too selfish by nature. I expect bigger and different crisis in near future.

Wonder if this means we'll be required to be vaccinated before we can go to Canada to activate our PR.

South Africa's vaccine roll-out is exceptionally slow, and mine will only be next year sometime, so that won't be good news. I'd be fine with tests and quarantining. Can't get a vaccine any faster though.
Wow. This seems inevitable. But not sure how soon it will be in place considering how slow Canada themselves are progressing in terms of the vaccine rollout.
Another question is which vaccines would be allowed as a vaccine passport. All the approved vaccines on Canada’s list are only available in a few countries.

That's a good point. I would assume they'd only allow the ones that Health Canada has approved. Maybe this will just be a tourism thing, or maybe you get to choose between arriving with a vaccine and skipping quarantine vs not having been vaccinated and having to quarantine. It'll be interesting to see what they reveal in time.

Which country is that?

Dunno where he's from, but for most Southeast Asian countries, mine included, we only have access (as of right now) with Chinese vaccines, Sinovac to be precise. Later this year, hopefully, we're also getting the Indian made ones, Covovax and Covaxin, hopefully the former would make the list of Health Canada approved vaccines since it has been developed by the Novovax US, just manufactured in India.

Quite possible there are other countries that have only ordered the Chinese vaccines. Especially in Africa. So, worth the ask. :p
Nigeria at the moment only has AstraZeneca

There's so much traffic between China and BC, especially the greater Vancouver region, so I'd expect Health Canada to approve China's vaccines for vaccine passports.
they don't open borders nor will allow copr holders to enter canada but will approve made in china vaccines.

It’s not gonna apply to all people for sure. I took the vaccine in the us and the us has no plan for a vaccine passport so it won’t even work with the us Canada border.
