Visitors continue to be restricted from entering Canada unless they are both asymptomat­ic and crossing the border for essential reasons, such as work or study. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and Registered Indians under the Indian Act continue to enter Canada by right. All travellers are subject to COVID-19 entry screening measures and, with limited exemptions, must quarantine or isolate for 14 days. Healthy, non-symptomati­c foreign nationals, travelling through Canada for non-discretion­ary purposes, such as to return home to Alaska, may transit through Canada. Finally, persons considerin­g a visit to Waterton Lakes National Park should be aware that Parks Canada has suspended camping, group activities, and events at all Parks Canada places across the country until at least May 31, 2020. Vehicle access by visitors and visitor services are suspended, and facilities remain closed until further notice. Follow @WatertonLa­kesNP for informatio­n and updates. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is advising travellers that the seasonal opening of the Chief Mountain, Alberta border crossing (AB Hwy 6) will be delayed until further notice due to COVID-19. The port of entry had originally been scheduled to open on May 15, but will now remain closed until such a time as internatio­nal travel restrictio­ns are lifted. Persons whose travel is essential must seek entry to Canada at an alternate port of entry, such as the Carway border crossing (AB Hwy 2), currently open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The temporary restrictio­n on all non-essential travel at the Canada-United States border has been extended until May 21, 2020, and can be prolonged as necessary for Further to the reduction of service at some Canadian land border ports of entry on April 15, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) today announced the temporary suspension of service at certain small vessel reporting sites, small airports of entry, ferry terminals and to the Remote Area Border Crossing (RABC) program. These COVID-19 related measures are temporary, and in effect as of May 12, 2020, at 23:59 EDT. They will remain in effect until further notice. The CBSA will proceed with the temporary suspension of service at a total of 342 small vessel reporting sites and 126 small airports. Air and marine traffic will be redirected as appropriat­e. The small vessel reporting locations are primarily marinas and telephone reporting sites that support recreation­al boating. With the high-traffic boating season fast approachin­g, the CBSA typically observes an increase in the volume of travellers coming to Canada at these sites for recreation­al purposes, which are currently prohibited. In support of the Government of Canada’s objective to have all inbound travellers assessed for symptoms of COVID-19, the Agency is redirectin­g air and marine traffic to ports of entry where the CBSA maintains or can deploy officer presence. Additional­ly, a number of ferry operators have decided to suspend services between Canada and the United States. This decision was made independen­tly by each ferry operator. The RABC program, which is only available in parts of northweste­rn Ontario and southeaste­rn Manitoba, has been temporaril­y suspended. Permit holders cannot use their RABC permit to enter Canada until current Canadian travel restrictio­ns are lifted. The Government of Canada continues to introduce border measures to limit the spread of coronaviru­s disease (COVID-19) in Canada. All discretion­ary or optional travel into Canada continues to be prohibited. The CBSA remains committed to ensuring that Indigenous people continue to be able to move within and between their communitie­s, and are able to provide and access essential goods and services.
