For those thinking about taking advantage of all the benefits physical participation gives you, here’s a handy travel guide to help you decide.
If you’re a fully vaccinated traveller, Canada is open for business! To qualify as a fully vaccinated traveller, you must have received the necessary accepted vaccination doses within a certain timeframe, and if your proof of vaccination is not in English or French, you need a certified translation in either language. To find out more about international travel—including the accepted vaccines—please click here. Note that there is no need to quarantine once in Canada.
Once in Montreal, you’ll find that the city is ready to welcome you. By the end of March, all facilities in Montreal will be able to run at full capacity, social distancing will not be required, all restaurants will be open at full capacity, and there will be no vaccine passport requirement at any establishment.
If you’re travelling to Montreal from other provinces or the U.S.A, here are some helpful resources for you:
