Returning to Canada

There is nothing specific you need to do when leaving the U.S. other than to make sure you have completed a test and received a negative result.

Once back in Canada, please remember that some provinces still require a mandatory quarantine upon your return from abroad. Information on what is required can be found on our Travel News Hub.
