In a new poll by the Angus Reid Institute, over half of Quebec respondents said that Canada should reach a vaccination rate of at least 75% before opening the U.S. border.
With many Canadians already envisioning a life post-COVID-19, the poll found that a "vast majority (69%)" are willing to wait it out until "at least three-quarters" of the country are fully vaccinated before opening the border to travel.
Only 22% of Canadians would be willing to open the Canada-U.S. border immediately, according to the survey.
Thirty-five percent of Quebec respondents agreed that the country should wait until over 75% of the population has two vaccine doses. Thirty-seven percent agreed that having 75% of the population fully vaccinated is adequate.
Only 20% of Quebec respondents agreed that the borders should open immediately.
Respondents in Alberta and Saskatchewan were the most interested in welcoming back Americans, according to the poll, as 42% and 30% of respondents, respectively, want the border to open immediately.

Garbage littered the street in front of the Bell Centre.
The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night to claim Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. The series now moves to Tampa, where the Lightning, still leading 3-1, has a chance to win the Cup at home (as their mayor, Jane Castor, was hoping).
But those odds didn't seem to damper Montrealers' spirit after their team's victory Monday. Video footage shows a crowd of hundreds outside the Bell Centre celebrating the Canadiens' win.
The video, captured by MTL Blog's Alex Melki, shows the crowd cheering and jumping at the moment the game ended and lingering downtown before police appear to disperse revellers. Melki reported that the SPVM used tear gas.
Garbage littered the streets.
In a morning report, SPVM spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant said four people were arrested for assaults on police officers.
Police also issued 36 tickets, Brabant said: 21 for municipal by-law violations and 15 for violations to the road code.
"At the end of the day, it went really well," he added.
