Travelling to Canada: Self-Isolation Guide 

Updated October 22, 2020

This guide has been prepared to assist any new and returning international students who are currently outside of Canada, and plan to travel to BC to return to studies. As of March 25, 2020, the government of Canada has made it mandatory that anyone entering Canada self-quarantine under the Quarantine Act. Any student arriving from outside of Canada must self-isolate and monitor themselves for symptoms of Covid-19 for 14 days upon their arrival and complete/register a self-isolation plan.

The global health crisis caused by COVID-19 has created unusual circumstances for students starting or returning to studies in Canada. Even though we aren’t there in person to meet and welcome you, we have a team of dedicated staff who are available to support students throughout their self-isolation period and beyond. Advisors are also available if you need support in completing the required isolation plans or help in understanding and using the information in this guide. Please do not hesitate to reach out to
