Current Public Health Measures (effective March 11, 2022):
- Wearing masks in public indoor settings is not required by public health. Wearing a mask is a personal choice. Masks are encouraged on public transit and BC Ferries, but not required.

Effective April 1st, 2022, fully-vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to complete a pre entry test for travel to Canada. Fully vaccinated travelers may still continue to undergo random testing upon entry to Canada, but they will no longer be required to quarantine while awaiting their results. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travelers will continue to be tested with COVID 19 molecular test on arrival and on day 8 while they quarantine for 14 days. All travelers are also required to complete Arrive-Can online or through the free mobile app before entry to Canada.

Make sure when travelling into Canada you have proper identification for yourself, and any children travelling with you, to help confirm your legal right or authorization to enter into Canada. All international traveller’s identification must be acceptable as well as valid visas (if necessary) to ensure entry; a passport is recommended because it is the only reliable, universally accepted travel/identification document for the purpose of international travel.
