Returning from International Travel





Attention all FFCA Families,

As of our most recent review of Canadian requirements on September 7, 2021, the following restrictions are in place for all students returning from international travel:

Unvaccinated children under age 12

  • Children less than 12 years of age who enter Canada CANNOT ATTEND SCHOOL FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS AFTER ARRIVAL TO CANADA.  As per the public health measures found here, they are not required to completely quarantine upon entering Canada, but for 14-days following their arrival in Canada, children under 12:
  1. CANNOT attend school, camp or daycare.

  2. CANNOT attend a setting where they may have contact with vulnerable people (e.g., long-term care facility), including with people who are immune-compromised, regardless of that person’s vaccination status or public health measures in place.

  3. CANNOT travel on crowded public transportation that does not ensure physical distancing and masking.

  4. CANNOT attend large crowded settings, indoors or outdoors, such as an amusement park or sporting event.

Unvaccinated students aged 12 to 17

  • Unvaccinated students aged 12 to 17 CANNOT ATTEND SCHOOL FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS AFTER ARRIVAL TO CANADA. They must quarantine for 14 days and follow all testing and quarantine requirements. A student who has only one dose of the vaccine must follow the criteria for the unvaccinated students.

Fully vaccinated traveller exemption for students aged 12 and older

  • Fully vaccinated students aged 12 or older may be exempt from quarantine IF they meet all other entry requirements; however, strict requirements must be followed even if you are exempt from quarantine. You must:
  1. wear a mask at all times when in public spaces, even when in classes.
  2. maintain a list of all close contacts for your first 14 days in Canada
  3. monitor yourself for signs and symptoms of COVID-19

Please ensure you follow these requirements if you have travelled or plan to travel out of the country.
