COVID-19 Public Health Measures

CANADA LIFTS PRE-ARRIVAL TESTS FOR VACCINATED TRAVELLERS
Fully vaccinated travellers will not need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test to enter Canada starting April 1st, 2022.The federal government is lifting the pre-arrival COVID-19 testing requirements for fully vaccinated travellers. Passengers may still be subjected to random PCR testing on arrival at Canadian airports. The federal government says travellers selected for mandatory random testing are not required to quarantine while awaiting their test result. All travellers will still be required to submit their mandatory information in the ArriveCAN app before arrival to Canada.

Given the extraordinary situation caused by the spread of COVID-19, we are giving you the links to the most up-to-date information about the travel and public health regulations.

We look forward to seeing you in Gatineau-Ottawa for the Canadian Hydrographic Conference!
