The Canadian federal government announced it is dropping all COVID-19 border restrictions for anyone entering Canada, including: proof of COVID-19 jab, quarantine and isolation requirements as well as all pre- or on-arrival COVID-19 testing.
“Canada is also making the ArriveCan application optional, and is lifting the mask mandate and health check requirements for travellers on planes and trains,” according to CTV News.
The end of these tyrannical restrictions takes effect on October 1st.

As of Oct. 1, all travelers, regardless of citizenship, will no longer have to:
- Submit public health information through the ArriveCAN app or website;
- Provide proof of vaccination;
- Undergo pre- or on-arrival testing;
- Carry out COVID-19-related quarantine or isolation;
- Monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms of COVID-19 upon arriving to Canada;
- Undergo health checks for travel on air and rail;
- Or wear masks on planes and trains.
More from CTV News:
Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino, Transport Minister Omar Alghabra and other relevant ministers and public health officials are speaking to the doing away with pandemic precautions Monday morning in Ottawa.
Deciding to allow the special orders that for months have upheld Canada’s special pandemic authorizations under the Quarantine Act to expire means:
- Foreign nationals won’t need to be vaccinated to enter the country;
- Incoming travellers to major airports won’t be subject to random mandatory COVID-19 tests;
- Unvaccinated Canadians will no longer have to isolate when they return;
- Travellers will not have to monitor or report if they develop COVID-19 symptoms upon arrival;
- Submitting public health information through the ArriveCan app prior to landing will become optional; and
- It’ll no longer be mandatory to wear a face mask while travelling on planes or trains.
Cruise ship measures are also being lifted, though passenger and crew protection guidelines will remain to “align with the approach used in the United States.”
