As many of you already know, as of Aug. 9th, 2021, Americans who have been fully vaccinated can travel to Canada without having to quarantine. Travellers must complete the following steps:
Must be fully vaccinated by a vaccine accepted by the Government of Canada. Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccines are Pfizer, Moderna, Astra Zeneca, Johnson & Johnson. You must have received your second dose at least 14 days prior to the day you enter Canada.
Must have a negative COVID-19 molecular* test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival. Here is the link for approved tests –…/covid-19-testing-travellers…. Please note that Antigen tests are not accepted.
Must be asymptomatic upon arrival.
Must provide a digital copy of vaccination documentation in English or French.
Must upload information into the ArriveCAN app – this app is free and secure. (Be cautious of third party, fraudulent webpages and apps that may be posing as ArriveCAN and asking you for payment. ArriveCAN is free and secure and is the official Government of Canada platform to provide your information when entering Canada). Here is the link to the app It can also be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
All information must be inputted into the ArriveCAN app within 72 hours prior to arrival in Canada. The app will ask you to input contact information for you and the people you are travelling with, purpose of trip, date of arrival, port of entry, proof of vaccination, and your quarantine plan. For the quarantine plan, input the location where you will be staying while in Canada (i.e. the lodge).
Participate in random COVID-19 testing.
International Passenger Flights
As of Aug. 9, international passenger flights will also be allowed in Halifax, Quebec City, Ottawa, Edmonton, and Winnipeg airports (this is in addition to Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, and Vancouver airports).
On September 7th, 2021 Canada intends to open its borders for non-essential travel by travelers from any country (other than India due to the Delta variant) who have been fully vaccinated with Government of Canada-accepted vaccines at least 14 days prior to entering Canada and who meet the specific entry requirements. The entry and arrival requirements for fully vaccinated travelers above will also apply.
I have heard rumors of folks being concerned about returning to the U.S. after their trip to Canada, so I called the U.S. Customs office in International Falls. The officer stated that they cannot deny U.S. citizens re-entry into their own country so that should not ben an issue. If anyone has questions and wants to talk with a customs officer, the International Falls number is (218) 283-2541 and the Baudette number is (218) 634-2803.
I am sure there will still be more clarifications as we go forward but this is basically the gist of the information. It is confusing if you look online as it appears that some information has been updated and some not so, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions and we will try and find out the correct answers for you.

Conditions will dictate how far we will be able to travel. We will come in for a hot lunch and then head to Lake of the Woods for an afternoon of Crappie fishing. At dark we will come in and have a hot supper. Saturday we will enjoy some of what we have caught and will have fish for supper. Sunday morning we will fish and then head home.
