Currently, travelers entering Canada must provide basic contact information using the traveler contact form. Now the Canadian federal government has released the voluntary ArriveCan mobile app to make it easier for individuals entering the country to provide their contact information to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) beforehand—instead of taking more time to provide the same info if requested by border officials. So if you’re a commercial carrier crossing the border, this should reduce the time it takes while still enabling you to provide the mandatory information to enter the country. Using this app will also limit physical contact with others.
The ArriveCan mobile app is available for the iOS, Android and web-based platforms. Note: the information must be submitted through the app 48 hours before arriving in Canada.
