Upon arrival in Canada, all travelers, including temporary foreign workers, will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. If they are deemed to not have any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and otherwise meet immigration entry requirements, they will be permitted to travel onwards to their final destination (whether this is via a domestic flight or otherwise). Subject to some specific exceptions (i.e. essential workers) a foreign worker will be required to self-isolate for a minimum of fourteen (14) days upon arrival at their final destination.

If however, the immigration/health officer determines that an individual has any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 upon arrival at their transfer point, depending on the severity of their condition, they may be placed in quarantine at the point of entry or, alternatively, will be sent to a local hospital.

Once they have recovered, their admissibility to Canada will be assessed again and, subject to approval by the reviewing immigration/health officer for health and immigration matters, they will be permitted to travel to their final destination.

If you have any questions relating to your employment during the COVID-19 era or related immigration matters, please contact Toronto immigration and employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at (416) 214-5111 or via email at mlahert@sultanlawyers.com.
