All COVID-19 border restrictions have removed, including mandatory vaccination, testing and quarantine of international travellers, as well as the requirement for masks on planes and trains.
But Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos is once again warning that pandemic restrictions could be reinstated if they are needed.
“We have learned over the last (two-and-a-half) years the type of measures that can work,” Duclos said.
“We will therefore leave open all possible options when it comes to protecting the health and safety of Canadians.”
The changes mean foreign nationals will no longer require an approved series of vaccinations to enter the country.
In addition, Canada-bound travellers will no longer be subject to random COVID-19 tests, and unvaccinated Canadians will not need to isolate when they return to the country.
Cruise passengers will not have to do pre-board tests or prove they have been vaccinated.
