As per the Airports and Airlines Digital Engagement Kit, part of the Government of Canada’s efforts to reduce the spread and prevent importation of COVID-19, all travellers entering Canada—by air, land or sea—must provide mandatory information and undergo health screening by a Border Services Officer or Quarantine Officer to assess symptoms and to verify compliance with the Emergency Orders implemented under the Quarantine Act. All individuals entering Canada must provide the Government with accurate contact information and isolate for 14 days if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or quarantine for 14 days if they do not have symptoms.
All travellers to Canada, including essential workers, are now required to provide specific information before and after entry into Canada, including providing an appropriate quarantine plan, contact information, and updates on symptoms through self-assessment. This information is crucial to slowing the spread of COVID-19.
The ArriveCAN mobile application, developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Canada Border Services Agency, provides a digital way for travellers to quickly, easily and securely provide their information.
