If it feels like a long time since you’ve been away from home, that’s because it probably has been! 

It’s been one whole year since Canada’s non-essential travel advisory was originally put into place, with Justin Trudeau urging Canadians at the time to “curtail non-essential international travel."

Back on March 13, 2020, during one of Trudeau’s first COVID-19 press conferences, he announced that the feds were officially advising against all discretionary travel abroad.

One year later, the government’s advice has stayed the same, with the PM regularly pleading with Canadians to cancel their upcoming vacations both within Canada and abroad.

While travel restrictions have been updated regularly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the general advice to stay at home wherever possible remains unchanged.
