Canada - The complete travel reopening and restrictions guide for every province and territory!

Right now Canada is closed to all foreign tourists, exceptions apply to returning residents, certain family members, and essential service workers.

So if you’re looking to visit Canada you’re going to have to wait a while, Canada is taking a very cautious approach towards reopening. We will keep you updated on the developments. You can check the CBSA (Canadian Border Services Agency) website for the most accurate information in regards to this, and exceptions that apply to certain family members.

All returning residents or those eligible to enter Canada are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine, which is actively being enforced.

So that leaves me to my audience, fellow Canadians that are residents or visitors already in the country...

For us Canadians, we are lucky that we have such a big country available to explore. You can see our live map of current restrictions below and also on our dedicated Canada page.

First and most importantly, if you traveled anywhere outside of Canada in the last 14 days, you must self isolate and not travel anywhere. In fact you shouldn't even think of leaving your home!
