Permanent residents of Canada and US citizens who are fully vaccinated will need to download the ArriveCan app before they return to Canada. Then they need to upload their vaccination proof to the app before they return to Canada and show proof of a negative PCR test.
As of August 9, these fully vaccinated travellers will not be required to quarantine upon arrival to Canada.
Children under 12 will not have to quarantine upon arrival in Canada but must travel with a fully vaccinated adult, show a negative PCR test, and avoid gatherings, school and daycare upon return.
Please consult with your airline or gov’t website of the country you are visiting to determine what testing requirements may be required. Even fully vaccinated travellers may be required to take a test depending on the rules of where you are going.

Yes. Many of our concessions and shops are open. Passengers are permitted to take their food and drink, including alcoholic drinks, to their gates and eat there as well as any restaurant.
Our enhanced cleaning operations will continue for as long as they are necessary. Safety is our top priority.
The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) will be checking the temperature of all passengers and staff who want to cross through a security checkpoint.
Safety and security is our number one core value. We’re glad to work with CATSA to help facilitate this and ensure the safety of all passengers.
Anyone with a temperature of 38 degrees and above will be asked to wait and then have a second check done 10 minutes later. If the second check shows an elevated reading, the person will not be allowed through the checkpoint and will not be allowed to return for 14 days.
If a person fails to pass the temperature screening, they will need a medical certificate stating their elevated temperature was not because of COVID-19 before they are allowed through the checkpoint over the next 14 days.
A negative COVID test does not qualify as medical clearance.
The temperature screening will be conducted with a touchless hand-held device. If a person requests additional privacy for the temperature check, they will be taken to an area with additional privacy.
Masks are still required inside the terminal and are mandatory past security checkpoints. Temperature checks are one more safety measure and do not eliminate the need for masks.
For more information please visit the CATSA website.

You will need to provide a doctor note or similar documentation to your airline specifying why you cannot wear a mask for medical reasons as it is a regulation by Transport Canada for flying or moving through security. If you do not have a mask or facial covering or medical documentation, you may be denied boarding your aircraft.
Children under two-years of age may not be required to wear a mask but the parents or caregiver are encouraged to maintain physical distancing as much as possible.
Security screening checkpoints are controlled by the Canadian Air Transport Safety Authority (CATSA) and they have their own cleaning arrangements. Please contact CATSA if you have concerns about cleaning standards at the security screening checkpoints.
