The government of Canada announced on February 15, 2022 that Travel Health Notice has been adjusted from Level 3 to Level 2.
As a result of this adjustment, the government no longer advises Canadians to avoid travel for non-essential reasons. The Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) of Transport Canada restricting foreign passenger flights' arrival in Canada will also expire starting from February 28, 2022.
In addition, international flights carrying passengers will be permitted to land at all Canadian airports capable to receive international flights.
The minister of Health, Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos stated:
"For two years now, our government’s actions in the fight against COVID-19 have been based on prudence and science. Today’s announcements are a reflection of the progress we have made against this current Omicron variant."
The minister added that,
"The return to mandatory random testing of all vaccinated travellers will facilitate travel for Canadians all while helping our public health authorities to detect future changes in COVID-19 importation rates and variants of concern. As we have said all along, Canada’s border measures will remain flexible and adaptable, for potential future scenarios."
Before travelling, travellers are to check if they are eligible to enter Canada and meet all entry requirements before heading to the border. Some provinces and territories may have their own entry restrictions in place. Therefore, they must check and follow both the federal and any provincial or territorial restrictions and requirements.
