    Although the dataset is tagged travel health, it doesn't include the travel health information.

    The json tagged buy the country short form doesn't make it easy to parse the data. Can you show me a way to parse the data?

    Hello, I am an economics student conducting research. I was curious if you maintained a database or record of historical travel warnings issued for travel abroad, specifically to Mexico (for example, all travel advisories for Mexico from 2000-2015 by month or something like that). If so, would it be possible for me to access this data for my study? Thank you for your time, I truly appreciate it

    Hello, I have a similar data request to Matt's above (i.e. same data, but for a different country and for different ranges of dates). To whom (at either Global Affairs Canada or Open Data Team) may I e-mail or direct this request? Thank you very much for your assistance!
