April 2022

The Government of Canada has announced that effective April 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers will no longer need to provide a pre-entry COVID-19 test result to enter Canada by air, land, or water.

Unfortunately, fully-vaccinated travellers may still be subject to random testing upon arrival, however they will not be required to quarantine while awaiting their test results.

For partially or unvaccinated travelers who are currently allowed to travel to Canada, pre-entry testing requirements are not changing.  Unless otherwise exempt, all travelers 5 years of age or older who do not qualify as fully vaccinated must continue to provide proof of an accepted type of pre-entry COVID-19 test result:    

  • a valid negative antigen test, administered or observed by an accredited lab or testing provider no more than one day before their initially scheduled flight departure time or their arrival at the land border or marine port of entry; or
  • a valid negative molecular (PCR) test taken no more than 72 hours before their initially scheduled flight departure time or their arrival at the land border or marine port of entry.

All travellers will continue to be required to submit their mandatory information in the ArriveCAN app 72 hours before their arrival in Canada.  Travellers who arrive without completing their ArriveCAN submission may have to test on arrival and quarantine for 14 days, regardless of their vaccination status. (It's very important that you arrive at the border having completed ArriveCAN questionnaire). A couple of links provided below to assist in research.

Bait: You cannot bring live minnows, smelts, leeches, or any other type of bait fish into Ontario from the United States. Night crawlers are NOT allowed..

This comes with a list of Covid-19 safety measures that guests will need to adhere to. Fully vaccinated travelers must meet the following requirements:

      • Download ArriveCAN app on your cell phone & set up (user name/password) OR use web portal.
      • QUESTIONS ArriveCAN will ask, see below; (You can add up to 8 individuals):
        • Arriving by Land or Air?
        • Port of Entry Crossing?
        • Estimated time of entry?
        • A couple of yes/no questions

  • Must meet the pre-entry testing requirements. (PCR molecular test required within 72hrs of crossing the border) Rapid test cannot be used.  Make appointment with your local hospital/clinic well in advance of your trip.  Schedule appointment as early in the morning as possible for your same day results and allow for travel time.  It's my understanding, Walgreens will do test for free if appointment is made in advance.
  • Must be be asymptomatic upon arrival.
  • Have a paper or digital copy of your vaccination documentation ready to show a government official on request.
  • You may be subjected to participate in random self-testing.
