How to report after you've entered Canada

How you report depends on whetheryou:

Used ArriveCAN to enter Canada

If you used the ArriveCAN mobile app before you entered Canada, you'll get a push notification on your phone and an email on the second day of your quarantine. This means the day after you entered Canada. If you used the web version of ArriveCAN to provide your information, you'll only get an email notification. The notification alerts you that you're ready to confirm:

  • your arrival at your place of quarantine or isolation
  • you can start your daily symptom reporting through ArriveCAN

You'll be able to complete your mandatory reporting in less than a minute.

When you open the mobile app or sign in online, you'll receive prompts to help you complete your daily check-in. If ArriveCAN shows the incorrect day of your quarantine period, follow the instructions provided by the border services officer.

On day9 of your quarantine period, you'll be asked if you've taken your COVID-19 test on day8, and if you've sent your sample to the lab. If you are exempt from this requirement, answer "no" to these questions.

If you are unable to use ArriveCAN after entering the country, call 1-833-641-0343 daily during your quarantine period.

Didn't use ArriveCAN to enter Canada

If you submitted your information verbally to a Canada border services officer or by paper form when you entered Canada, you can't use ArriveCAN to complete your mandatory reporting. You must call 1-833-641-0343 instead. It will take approximately 5minutes to complete your daily reporting. Each traveller must call individually. For example, if you are a family of four, you need to make 4separate phone calls.

If you submitted information for an unvaccinated traveller

If you submitted information for unvaccinated travellers who aren't exempt from quarantine:

  • you'll continue receiving notifications and/or emails from ArriveCAN asking you to complete your daily reporting and day-8 testing
  • you must complete daily symptom self-assessments for the unvaccinated travellers in your submission.

Your privacy is protected

ArriveCAN:

  • does not use GPS or other technology on your mobile phone to track your location

ArriveCAN has a new feature called the "saved traveller" profile that's optional and voluntary. For those using it to make future submissions quicker, a separate privacy notice with more information is available. ArriveCAN saved traveller privacy notice.

How your ArriveCAN information is used and disclosed

The Government of Canada uses and discloses the information you provide in ArriveCAN:

  1. to verify or enforce compliance with the emergency order under the QuarantineAct
  2. for public health follow up, including by the provinces and territories
