What to Expect When in Canada

Canada is allowing fully vaccinated Americans and foreign nationals to enter the country. Each traveler’s passport and vaccination card needs to be scanned into the ArriveCAN app, along with an address of somewhere you’ll stay in case you need to quarantine in Canada.

As of March 11, 2022, Canada has begun returning to pre-pandemic normalcy. Health officials have lifted the mask mandate and face coverings will no longer be required for indoor environments.

According to Canada’s official vaccine tracker, about 85% of the population is fully vaccinated.

Vaccination & Testing Requirements

Fully vaccinated residents of the United States and international travelers are currently allowed to enter Canada. Entry to Canada remains prohibited for all foreign travelers who are not fully vaccinated.

Accepted COVID-19 vaccines in Canada:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty, tozinameran, BNT162b2)
  • Moderna (mRNA-1273)
  • AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD (ChAdOx1-S, Vaxzevria, AZD1222)
  • Janssen/Johnson Johnson (Ad26.COV2.S)

Boosters are not required at this time.
