As of April 1, 2022 at 12:01 AM EDT, Canada will remove the requirement of pre-entry testing for fully vaccinated visitors. The government of Canada announced that the measure is valid when travelling by air, land or water. Mandatory random testing upon arrival will still exist. Pre-entry testing requirements remain the same for partially or unvaccinated travellers and all travellers are still required to submit their mandatory information in ArriveCAN.
The Honourable Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance, said: “After a challenging two years, we all want the Canadian economy, including the tourism sector, to rebound and grow. We in government have been listening to the concerns of tourism businesses across the country. We are confident that, thanks to all that Canadians have done to protect one another, we can now take the next step forward and remove testing requirements for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada. The economy, workers and tourism business owners will benefit from this next step in opening Canada up once again to the world.”
