Fully vaccinated US travellers allowed to Canada starting August 9

On July 19, the federal government announced that effective August 9, Canada will allow fully vaccinated American citizens and permanent residents (currently residing in the US) to enter the country. All other fully vaccinated travellers from abroad who meet entry requirements will be permitted to enter from September 7 and may not be subject to quarantine.

This is a positive step towards recovery of the tourism sector. We will be sharing our approach for the US and international markets soon. Watch this space for details. In the meantime, please see Destination Canada key messages:
