On September 26, the Government of Canada formally announced the end of travel mask mandate and COVID-19 border and quarantine restrictions.

The federal government is dropping all COVID-19 border restrictions for anyone entering Canada, including: proof of COVID-19 vaccination, quarantine and isolation requirements as well as all pre- or on-arrival COVID-19 testing at the end of September. Canada is also making the ArriveCan application optional, and is lifting the mask mandate and health check requirements for travellers on planes and trains. Declaring the imminent end of these restrictions—effective Oct. 1— marks a major milestone in Canada’s pandemic response.
