The federal government advises that Canadians avoid all non–essential travel, both at home and abroad. Stay informed on the latest travel rules and restrictions by visiting the Government of Canada’s site on travel health notices.
If your reason for travel is considered essential by a province or territory under the Quarantine Act’s emergency orders (and you are given an exemption by the government of Canada) here are some helpful resources to help you plan your trip.
Should you need to travel, Air Canada is flying to destinations across Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia.
Air travel – like grocery shopping or salon visits or school drop–off – looks pretty different right now. Masks abound. The smell of hand sanitizer hangs in the air. And sometimes, information about what’s allowed and which practices are best can get a bit convoluted. We’re here to help, rounding up the latest rules and research for any Canadian who’s planning to take a trip right now.
Can I visit another province in Canada?
You can go to some of them, though you might not get the warmest reception: In November, B.C. Premier John Horgan called for country–wide restrictions on non–essential travel and urged Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to ask Canadians to “stay where you live.” Currently, travel between Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. is permitted (if discouraged) and doesn’t require quarantining. Other provinces and territories allow travel with 14–day self–isolation requirements. And a few out east will not allow non–residents in, other than for essential reasons like going to school or attending a funeral.
