New Travel and Testing Requirements

February 22, 2022

As we begin to look towards a long-term approach to managing COVID-19, I know that many of you are eager to travel.

The Government of Canada has announced the easing of measures on travel restrictions. All travellers will be required to submit their mandatory information via ArriveCAN (via the website or the mobile app).

As of February 28, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers can take a rapid antigen to return to Canada, instead of a PCR test. We will continue to re-evaluate our measures on an ongoing basis in consultation with public health experts while ensuring the reunification of family and friends can can occur safely. Please continue to consider the potential costs of travelling abroad, the availability of medical services in other countries, and the necessity to make alternative arrangements should you test positive before returning from abroad.

These new measures will help us to welcome visitors to Canada and allow Canadians to begin to travel once again. For full requirements to return or enter Canada click this link: https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid
