Canada's Transport Minister Omar Alghabra commented during a press conference on June 14, 2022, mandatory quarantine and testing rules at the Canada border continue for those who are unvaccinated for COVID-19.

Commercial drivers seeking to cross the Canada-U.S. border still need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, despite the federal government lifting other health measures for travelers as of June 20, 2022, reported CTV News.

Despite the vaccine mandate being lifted, domestic travelers will still be required to wear face masks on planes and interprovincial trains in Canada.

And, everyone must use ArriveCAN to provide mandatory travel information (vaccination status) before and after entering Canada. The latest version of ArriveCAN (v.2.29) was released on May 15, 2022. 

The Public Health Agency of Canada's travel health notices outline potential health risks to Canadian travelers and recommend ways to help reduce them.
