Canadians Who Lie About Their Vaccines To Skip Travel Measures Will Be Fined Up To $750K

Travel restrictions will be eased for fully vaccinated Canadian travellers. 👇

Travel Restrictions In Canada: Vaccine Status Lies Could Result In $750K Fine

The federal government plans to crack down on anybody who lies about their COVID-19 vaccination status in order to skip travel restrictions in Canada.

In a notice shared on June 21, officials confirmed that a person who "submits false information on vaccination status" could be liable to a fine of up to $750,000 under the Quarantine Act.

Under Canada's Criminal Code, those who lie about whether they've been fully vaccinated could also face up to six months in jail for forgery.

These penalties also apply to anybody in Canada who violates quarantine or isolation measures, too.

This comes as restrictions are set to be eased from July 5 for eligible fully vaccinated Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

The updates will enable qualifying travellers to skip the two-week quarantine upon arrival in Canada, in addition to the hotel stay and day-eight COVID-19 test.

Travellers will be required to share their proof of vaccination status via the ArriveCAN app.

As of September 11 at 12:01 a.m., anyone who hosts a social gathering in the area — from homeowners, tenants, owners, and business operators — must conduct contract tracing of everyone who comes over. This means having a complete list of names and contact information of everyone who comes over (no matter how old they are) and holding onto that information for at least a month.
