Per the notice, the new staff will be working in “high-visibility roles to help travellers understand their responsibilities.”
Canada's busiest airports are Toronto Pearson International Airport, Vancouver International Airport, Montreal-Trudeau International Airport and Calgary International Airport.

It was also recently discovered that some people quarantining in Canada post-travel can claim $1,000 through one of the government’s COVID-19 benefits — a loophole that has drawn criticism from several politicians.
