Travelling Safely

Information on travelling to Canada changes frequently. The Public Health Agency of Canada's travel health notice outlines current Canadian border restrictions.

University Travel

  • University-Funded Travel

    Acadia has suspended all university-funded travel until further notice. Employees considering a trip should review insurance coverage notices from our insurer SSQ and speak with direct supervisors and Human Resources before making plans.

  • International Student Travel

    Acadia is a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) for international students, which means that Acadia can welcome international students currently residing outside Canada.

    International students should review required documents and procedures for travel in Canada and use the ArriveCAN app/service.

    Acadia will provide updated information on arrival, quarantine, and orientation on the International Student website.

General Travelling

  • Provincial Travel Restrictions

    Currently, everyone (12 or older) who travels from another Canadian province or territory (outside Nova Scotia) needs to complete the Safe Check-in Form before they travel to Nova Scotia. This also includes most travellers who are exempt from self-isolation and if you’re travelling through Nova Scotia to another destination. You may need to self-isolate when you arrive in Nova Scotia for at least 7 days. You don’t need to self-isolate if you’re exempt from self-isolation.

    Visit the provincial website to learn more.


  • Federal Government Travel Restrictions

    Effective December 15, 2021, the Government of Canada advises avoiding non-essential travel outside Canada due to the risk of the Omicron variant that causes COVID-19. Learn more.
