The entry prohibition and mandatory isolation orders in council have been amended to create an exemption that will facilitate the entry of high-performance amateur athletes into Canada.
Canadian Heritage (PCH) is leading an authorization process for high-performance amateur athletes and support personnel participating in designated international single-sport events (ISSEs).
A new instruction page outlines PCH’s authorization process, as well as how to prioritize the processing of immigration applications for this clientele.
