COVID-19 tests: if you qualify as fully vaccinated, a COVID-19 test is not needed to board a flight or train in Canada unless you’re flying to a country that requires it.
If you fail to provide proof of vaccination (or valid COVID-19 test result if you have an exemption from your carrier), you won’t be allowed to travel and could face penalties or fines.
Vaccination is required for travel within and to depart Canada. A valid COVID-19 molecular test will no longer be accepted as an alternative to vaccination unless you’re eligible for one of the limited exemptions.
