Travelling to Canada using ArriveCAN

After over 16 months of border closures, US citizens are able to enter Canada after August 9, 2021. In order to enter Canada, US citizens seeking entry must be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to entry.

Anyone seeking entry into Canada must use the ArriveCAN app. I made a video showing my ArriveCAN submission:

“As recreational sports like hockey and youth soccer return, we have seen an increase in COVID-19 exposures. In some cases, sport facilities have been closed.

“Like many other activities that have restarted, provincial sports organizations and sports facilities require COVID-19 safety plans to ensure a safe return to sport. Similar to the approach in the recent NHL playoffs, the plans have prioritized the players over the spectators, with restrictions in place in arenas and on the sidelines.

“Let’s all do our part to help strengthen the well-being of all our communities – using our layers of protection, going back to our smaller, safer social interactions and all of us working together to find our balance with COVID-19.”
