Travel in Ontario
- There are currently no restrictions on travel within Ontario.
- Travellers entering Ontario from another Canadian province are not required to quarantine. Anyone with symptoms should self-isolate. Everyone should continue to practice safe distancing.
- For Canadians returning to Ontario after an extended absence, the 3-month waiting period for OHIP coverage will be waived.
Three orders governing travel restrictions have recently been extended by the federal government:
- All non-essential travel between Canada and the U.S is prohibited. This order has been extended until July 21.
- All travellers who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people entering from the U.S. for "essential" reasons are barred from entering Canada. This order has been extended until July 31
- All travellers are required to quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Canada. This order has been extended to the end of August.
To help Canadians abroad return home, the Government of Canada is creating a special financial assistance program, the COVID-19 Emergency Loan Program for Canadians Abroad. With this program, Canadians abroad directly impacted by COVID-19 will have the option of applying for an emergency loan of up to $5,000 to help secure their timely return to Canada and to temporarily cover their life-sustaining needs while they work toward their return.
