Federal Government Easing Travel Restrictions and Testing Requirement


Starting on February 28, Canadians returning or people travelling to Canada will no longer require a negative PCR test and will be permitted to submit a negative rapid test instead.   The rapid test should be taken the day prior to their scheduled flight or arrival at the land border or marine port of entry, and will need to be administered by a laboratory, healthcare entity or telehealth service.

Children under 12 years old, travelling with fully vaccinated adults, will no longer need to wait 14 days before attending school, camp or daycare upon return.

The federal government will adjust its Travel Health Notice and will no longer recommend that Canadians avoid travel for non-essential purposes.
