Stricter testing coming to Canada's borders


Canada will soon require COVID-19 tests before you arrive at a border, when you arrive, and near the end of the mandatory 14-day quarantine.

The economy has been hit hard by the Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic. Air Canada says it lost $1.16 billion in the final three months of last year.

    1. Hopefully, when the Coronavirus Covid-19 Pandemic is "finished," then you can go to Canada on vacation.

      Who can travel to Canada: Citizens, persons registered under Canada’s Indian Act, permanent residents, foreign nationals and refugees.

      New requirements for travel to Canada:
      As of February 15, 2021, travellers entering Canada by land must also provide proof of a valid COVID-19 molecular test result taken in the U.S. upon arrival at the border. Some travellers, like commercial truckers, will be exempt from these measures.

      To protect Canadians from the outbreak of the Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic, Canada created travel restrictions that limit travel to Canada. Until further notice, most foreign nationals cannot travel to Canada, even if they have a valid visitor visa or electronic travel authorization (eTA).

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

    1. Thanks.I've never been to Calgary. It seems they do have "The Sentry Box" - The World's Largest Game Store. From the pictures, it looks like a pretty good game store. They have puzzles, games, cards and more. The selection is large.
