COVID-19 and hurricane season: Advice for Canadians abroad
On March 13, 2020, Global Affairs Canada issued an Official Global Travel Advisory recommending that Canadians avoid non-essential travel outside Canada until further notice.
On March 16, 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the creation of the COVID-19 emergency loan program to assist Canadians abroad.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Global Affairs Canada worked closely with foreign governments and airlines to facilitate flights for Canadians in Canada’s largest and most complex consular operation.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada’s network of 178 missions in 110 countries remains open to serve Canadians. They have adapted how they provide services in challenging operational environments that include local curfews, travel restrictions and national lockdowns.
