New Travel Requirement App - ArriveCAN / Nouvelle exigence relative aux voyages - ArriveCAN
La version française suit le texte anglais.
New Travel Requirement App - ArriveCAN
ArriveCAN is a secure way for travellers to submit mandatory information required to enter Canada. It should also speed up processing for travellers at the border, including reducing points of physical contact between travellers and border services officers.
Starting November 21, 2020, all travellers flying to Canada will need to submit the following information via ArriveCAN by either using the free mobile app, or by signing in online before they board their flight:

contact information

travel information

quarantine plan (unless they are exempt)

COVID-19 symptoms self-assessment

We are aware of the challenges that this poses for vulnerable refugees, many of whom will not have either the technological or the literacy skills to provide this information.
We are working with the Public Health Agency of Canada and our resettlement partners to identify solutions for this population.
While we encourage all private sponsors to let the International Organization for Migration make travel arrangements for resettled refugees, we recognize that some sponsors make their own arrangements. In these cases, sponsors will need to ensure that they or their sponsored refugees submit the necessary information after they have entered the country. They may also call the toll-free line, but we strongly encourage everyone to use ArriveCAN.
For more information, visit canada.ca/ArriveCAN.
We will provide more information as it becomes available.

Thank you,
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada
