Pandemic and travel: a risky combination

News Release

The third wave of the pandemic sweeping the country means that there is still a lot of uncertainty when it comes to planning for the next few months. The variants are changing the tides, as are vaccination campaigns rolling out in many countries.

Under these circumstances, travel is still very risky. Because the situation is still very uncertain, the Canadian government has tightened the measures imposed on travellers (quarantines and mandatory tests), and border restrictions are being enforced.

Because your health is important to us, we encourage you to respect these measures and avoid non-essential travel as much as possible.

However certain situations that may require you to travel abroad.
