Pack your bags.

Starting Oct. 1, Canada is dropping all coronavirus entry and travel restrictions, so visitors will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination, get tested, submit health information through an official online site, report symptoms, isolate or quarantine, or wear a mask on planes or trains.

The same applies to cruise ships.


Like many other countries, Canadian public health authorities said several factors led to the end of pandemic-era rules; high vaccination rates; low hospitalization and death rates; new vaccine boosters; and models that indicate the country has passed the peak of infections from the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants.
