Guidance for a Strategic Approach to Lifting Restrictive Public Health Measures

Travel Restrictions

Departing Canada:
Avoid all non-essential travel outside Canada

The restriction on all discretionary travel at the Canada-U.S. border initially implemented on March 21, 2020, is currently ongoing.

Returning to Canada:
Travellers with symptoms: mandatory isolation for 14 days.

Travellers without symptoms: mandatory quarantine for 14 days.

Within Canada:
All air passengers subject to a health check prior to boarding plane or train.

All travellers arriving to Canada by air, as of February 22, 2021, with some exceptions, will be required to take a COVID-19 molecular test when they arrive in Canada before exiting the airport, and another toward the end of their 14-day quarantine period. With limited exceptions, air travellers, will also be required to reserve, prior to departure to Canada, a 3-night stay in a government-authorized hotel. Travellers will be able to book their government-authorized stay starting February 18, 2021. These new measures are in addition to existing mandatory pre-boarding and health requirements for air travellers.
