These restrictions stop all non-essential (discretionary) travel to Canada.

Please visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC0 website for information on who can travel to Canada at this time.

Persons who are authorized to travel to Canada should inform themselves about the public health measures for travelers to Canada.
