The Government of Canada advises all Canadians against non-essential travel to all countries at this time. The World Health Organization has declared the COVID-19 outbreak to be a pandemic meaning the outbreak is now global.
As the outbreak develops, local authorities abroad may impose control measures including movement restrictions such as quarantine. Travellers abroad may also have limited access to health care should they get ill. If you are abroad, it is recommended that you come home.
For travellers who have no available funds to come home, the COVID-19 Emergency Loan Program is available for Canadians abroad. To access assistance, call Global Affairs Canada’s 24/7 Emergency Watch and Response Centre at +1-613-996-8885 (call collect where available) or email CAN.finances.CV19@international.gc.ca.
Upon returning to Canada, all travellers are asked to self-isolate at home for 14 days. During this time, please monitor your health. If you start to exhibit symptoms, please contact your local health authority. In Saskatchewan, call 811. Healthy workers who are essential to the movement of goods are exempt from this request but should still practice social distancing.
