House Hunting Trips and Destination Inspection Trips Information on Local Community Conditions

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact everyday activities such as the Active Posting Season.

This page was created to ensure consistency in the approval of House Hunting Trips (HHTs) and Destination Inspection Trips (DITs).

The below planning tool and resources for local communities in Canada will help determine if conditions at the member’s destination are acceptable for the conduct of a HHT/DIT within the current COVID-19 environment.

The information on local conditions is not all-inclusive, but is aimed at supporting Canadian Armed Forces members to conduct a successful HHT/DIT.  Information will be updated as needed.

Restrictions on HHTs/DITs are expected to be lifted in the near term, on direction from the Chief of the Defence Staff. Upon restart, HHTs and DITs will be conducted within the constraints imposed by municipal, regional, territorial, provincial or federal restrictions.

Would you recommend HHTs/DITs be conducted in your area at this time?

Yes. In Nova Scotia, CAF members and spouses are exempt from quarantine for the purpose of HHT. It is not recommended to bring children for HHT trips to Nova Scotia, because childcare is difficult to find. Please note that families from outside the Atlantic provinces WILL be required to quarantine for 14 days when they complete their move to Nova Scotia.

Travel within Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador is permitted without the requirement to self-isolate for Atlantic Canadian residents. If you live in an Atlantic Canadian province, you need to show proof of residency when you enter Nova Scotia. When Atlantic Canadians arrive in Nova Scotia, every adult needs to provide government-issued identification (like a Driver's Licence or Health Card) or a utility bill or bank statement that shows their permanent home address. A self-declaration form isn't required to enter Nova Scotia. Atlantic Canadians also need to follow public health directives while they're in Nova Scotia.

Risk of infection with COVID-19 exists for CAF members and their dependents while travelling on HHT/DIT. The member and their dependents can also represent a risk to others particularly if travelling from a location where the number of COVID-19 cases is high. Members and their dependents are therefore reminded to maintain strict adherence to public health measures regardless of the medical threat assessment as COVID-19 remains a real threat at this time across the country.

It is highly recommended that you read the local community information in this chart for any location that you will be transiting through while traveling on HHT/DIT.

Would family members be expected to be quarantined once arriving in the local area if travelling from outside of the province?

No. The Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health has confirmed that DND members can conduct house hunting trips without the need to self-isolate. OCMOH has provided an exception to family members of a DND member so that they are not required to self-isolate if they must accompany the DND member. DND is actively encouraging members to do the trips alone, but it is recognized that this is sometimes not possible, and so this exception is being made. However, for both the DND member and their family, activity in NS is restricted solely to the house hunting – no shopping, day trips, etc.
