COVID-19 Travel Tool Kit

As of September 7, 2021, Canada has allowed entry of travellers from any country for discretionary reasons if they have been fully vaccinated with Government of Canada-accepted vaccines, at least 14 days prior to entering Canada, and if they also meet specific entry requirements. PHAC has developed a Digital Engagement Kit to support the changes in the Sept. 7 border measures and modified travel requirements. The kit was developed for partners and stakeholders to deepen their understanding and communicate up to date border and travel requirements for entering Canada during COVID-19.

Important clarifications contained in the kit and available on the Travel Canada website:

  • All non-exempt, including unvaccinated, travellers are required to quarantine for the full 14 days from their date of arrival into Canada. Travellers are not required to remain in quarantine past 14 days if they have not received the results of their federally approved Day 8 COVID-19 molecular test.
  • If a student receives a negative test result from the Day 8 test, they must complete their mandatory 14-day quarantine period. After the 14th day of quarantine, the student may leave their place of quarantine.
  • If a student receives a positive test result for the Day 8 test, they must isolate themselves from others immediately. A PHAC official will call them to provide them with additional instructions.
  • If a student receives an inconclusive or invalid result for the Day 8 test, they will have to repeat the test. The testing provider will automatically provide them with a new kit; however, PHAC recommends that they contact the testing provider to ensure a kit has been sent. Travellers are not required to remain in quarantine past 14 days; however, a repeat test is required. If a student has not received a test result, they can contact the testing provider:
