Do not travel

Foreign nationals aren't permitted to enter Canada for non-essential purposes. There are a small number of exceptions to these restrictions (see Travel). If you're allowed to enter Canada, you must demonstrate you have a suitable plan to self-isolate for 14 days or you'll be sent to a designated quarantine facility. You must wear a face mask or covering while travelling, at Canadian airports, at screening checkpoints and where physical distancing requirements aren't possible. If you don't have your own face mask, you won't be allowed to fly to, from or within Canada. If you want to leave Canada, do so as soon as possible by commercial means. Direct flights between Canada and Australia are suspended. You may be able to fly to Australia via the US, Qatar or other hubs.
