Everyone, whether Canadian citizen or international, is required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Canada from abroad. This applies to both land and air travel.

At Canadian Port of Entry, a Canada Border Services Officer will ask you for:

  • an address,
  • phone number, and
  • email address where you will be reachable during this period.

A representative of the Government of Canada will check on you during the 14-day period to monitor your compliance. 

If you are travelling to Montreal from another Canadian province, and have not travelled abroad in the 14 days prior, you will not need to quarantine.

If you violate these rules or any instructions provided to you when you enter Canada, this is an offence under the Quarantine Act. Consequences may include up to $750,000 in fines and/or 6 months in prison, and/or being removed from Canada and banned from entering for one year. 

If you do not abide by the Quarantine Act, you could also face fines of up to $1 million and 3 years’ imprisonment
