New regulations for air and train travel have kicked in today by Transport Canada.

Travellers who are 12 years of age or older are required to be fully vaccinated to travel from Canadian airports and on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains.

From October 30th through November 29th, 2021, there will be a short transition period when travellers who don’t qualify as fully vaccinated will be able to travel if they can show a valid COVID-19 molecular test taken within 72 hours of travel.

In addition to the vaccination requirement, all existing mandatory pre-boarding and health requirements for passengers remain in place, including health check questions and wearing masks inside airports and rail terminals and while on board planes and trains.

All passengers must wear a mask throughout their entire travel journey except for brief periods while eating, drinking, or taking oral medication, or unless otherwise exempt. Some of these exemptions include children under two years old, people who cannot remove the mask without assistance and people who provide a medical certificate certifying that they are unable to wear a face mask for a medical reason.
