For fully vaccinated travellers without COVID-19 symptoms arriving in Canada by land, air or water

The Government of Canada has put in place emergency measures under the Quarantine Act to slow the introduction and spread of COVID-19 and variants in Canada. Even if you have been fully vaccinated, there is still a risk that you can be infected with COVID-19 and transmit the virus to others. To help keep others safe, you are required to meet the requirements under the Minimizing the Risk of Exposure of COVID-19 in Canada Order (Quarantine, Isolation and Other Obligations).
Fully vaccinated travellers who are asymptomatic are not required to quarantine upon entering Canada if they comply with the measures as outlined below. Fully vaccinated means having received the full series of a vaccine, or combination of vaccines accepted by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada. Your vaccination status will be validated each time you enter Canada.
