Self-Isolation Requirements for Canadian Returning Travellers

  • Starting on Thursday, April 16th, travellers returning to Canada will be subject to additional self-isolation requirements under the Quarantine Act.
  • Specifically, all travellers returning to Canada are required to provide proof to a CBSA officer that they have a “credible quarantine plan”.
  • A credible quarantine plan is one where you will not have contact with vulnerable people (people 65 years or older or people with underlying medical conditions) and you will have access to basic necessities such as food and medication.
  • Those without a credible quarantine plan will be required to self-isolate in a facility designated by the Federal government, such as a hotel.
  • In addition, all returning travellers are required to wear a non-medical facemask or face covering while travelling to their place of self-isolation.
