Welcome back to the city you know and love

Following a thorough, thoughtful and determined response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Montréal is back in action on its many cultural and commercial fronts. The city has opened its arms to all in a manner that is mindful of health and well-being while remaining accessible and exciting in all the ways visitors have come to know and love.

Indeed, the province of Québec prides itself on being one of the safest destinations anywhere in the world. And now is the time to take full advantage of that legendary hospitality as we get back to making the most of what Montréal has to offer!

 

Basic rules and tips for optimizing your trip

While Montréal is open for business (and, of course, pleasure), there are still a few essential things visitors need to know to ensure a smooth, stress-free travel experience.

 

Travelling to Montréal

NOTE: COVID-19 border measures end on October 1, 2022.

Starting October 1, 2022, all COVID-19 border requirements, including vaccination, mandatory use of ArriveCAN, and any testing and quarantine/isolation requirements will be lifted for all travellers entering Canada, whether by land, air or sea. Also, wearing a mask will no longer be obligatory aboard planes and trains.

 

Once you’ve arrived in Montréal

  • If the lively Montréal that visitors discover on arrival seems almost exactly like the vibrant, pre-pandemic version of itself, that’s because it is. The principal difference is that wearing a mask (which has become second nature, and very often, a fashion statement) is still mandatory for those aged 10 years and over in certain indoor public spaces and public transit, helping to ensure a healthy environment for everyone. (NOTE: Since June 18, it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask on public transit.)
  • Limiting contacts and maintaining a one-metre (six-foot) distance from other people have also proven to be successful ways of keeping each other safe.
