    7317F71E-CB40-4F8F-9EE6-506ED12EE458.jpeg Drivers must use the arrive can app as of dec 1. Very easy to do. Download the app, upload the ID you use to cross( if you have a fast, nexus or enhanced DL, use that before a passport), upload your federal proof of vaccination. Essential travellers only have to submit once, as long as you don’t do a non essential trip. For example, I cross 5 days a week, I use the same code. If I go on vacation or do a day shopping trip, I create a new code for that trip. Then create a new code for essential travel.

    Soft enforcement until jan14th. On the 15th, if you do not submit in ArriveCAN, you will be quarantined at the port, regardless of vaccination status, and be subject to an $8500 fine for the first offence.

    Don’t shoot the messenger, just passing on the info.

    How's it work if you don't have a phone that is compatible with apps?

    There’s a website you can go to on a computer. Print it off I guess?

    According to the memo sent out to us this week this does not apply to truck drivers entering Canada until Jan..15. The US will start requiring proof of vaccine on Jan.22. I crossed into Canada today and it wasn't a requirement .

    We were supposed to have to start using this app a long time ago. I used it a couple of times never made a difference crossing. Was never ask by the guard for the code, nothing. Just another government idea. Lol

    Just to highlight that point, people like me who have been using a reusable receipt that doesn't include vaccine status need to create a new one. Vaccinated or not.

    Exempt essential travellers
    Starting November 30, 2021, all exempt essential service providers must provide their vaccination status in ArriveCAN. This must be done even if you’re allowed to enter as unvaccinated.

    As for soft enforcement, atleast for non essential travelers, that seems to mean 14 day quarantine but no big fine. Countless news articles like this one
    Buffalo shopping trip lands Fort Erie couple in 14-day quarantine
    Returning to Canada from a short trip to the U.S.? Use ArriveCAN or be placed under quarantine - Sault Ste. Marie News

    That’s on the port. People should complain. They are wrong for doing it. Suppose to be informing travellers only from dec 1 to Jan 14. No punitive measures.
