Canada's borders are still closed to foreign visitors. Although we can't wait to see you again, we invite you to respect the measures in place and to be extremely careful.

Visitors from Other Canadian Provinces 
There are no isolation measures for people arriving from other Canadian provinces. Despite the reopening of most of the regions, every person is requested, as much as possible, to limit travel from one region to another or from one city to another. 

Visitors from USA 
There are border restrictions for nonessential travel to Canada at the Canada-U.S. borders. Travelers are prohibited from entering Canada from the United States for an optional or discretionary purpose, such as tourism, recreation or entertainment. 

Visitors from Europe  
Foreign travellers cannot enter Canada, apart from a few exemption situations.
