Canada is starting to loosen some travel restrictions for fully vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents.
Beginning Monday, residents who have had a full course of an approved COVID-19 vaccine will be able to skip the 14-day quarantine as they return to this country.
To be considered fully vaccinated, you must be eligible to enter Canada, have received the full series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine or a combination of accepted vaccines (Phizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, Johnson & Johnson), received your last dose at least 14 days prior to the day you enter Canada, and have uploaded your proof of vaccination and results of a negative COVID-19 test that is less than three days old in the ArriveCAN app.
Fully vaccinated Canadians & permanent residents travelling back into the country no longer have to quarantine. Air travellers don’t have to stay 3 days at the government approved hotel. No day 8 test either. @CHCHNews #TravelRestrictions #Canada pic.twitter.com/uxLznJPQjc

Canada Border Services Agency warns would-be travellers still may be denied entry if they were not eligible to travel to Canada before Monday.
Residents were previously under rigid travel restrictions which included testing, quarantine and a hotel stopover for travellers arriving by air.
