The Atlantic provinces require certain visitors to pre-register some, as far as 5 days in advance of planned travel, SEE BELOW), and travellers to Nunavut must first get authorization. Also, the Northwest Territories still bars most leisure travellers.
However, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, Manitoba and the territories still require some inter-provincial travellers to quarantine.
The rest of Canada can skip quarantine in the Atlantic provinces if fully vaccinated or, in the case of New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador, have at least one dose. (PEI’s exemption for vaccinated travellers doesn’t kick in until Sunday, July 18).
Fully vaccinated travellers can also skip quarantine in Manitoba and the territories.
Manitoba, Yukon and the Atlantic provinces also exempt from quarantine unvaccinated children under 12 — if all their vaccinated guardians meet the exemption requirement. In Nova Scotia, the rule applies to unvaccinated children ages 18 and younger.
Nov 2021 – All provinces now have a QR Code for verification of double-vaccination status.
Some provinces may require that QR Code be shown as proof the gain entry into a province, and all provinces now require the QR code to be provided to enter restaurants, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and sports facilities. The strictness and range of covered establishments will vary by province.
