Self-isolation resources for newcomers to Canada during COVID-19
September 20, 2021
UBC's Housing and Relocation Services has developed a self-isolation resource package in response to the Government of Canada requiring newcomers to Canada entering Canada by air, sea or land to self-isolate for 14 days whether or not they have symptoms of COVID-19.
The document provides helpful instructions when planning on travelling to Canada, with links to resources such as temporary accommodation, travel options from point of entry to place of self-isolation, grocery delivery and concierge services.
If you have any questions, please contact Housing and Relocation Services office, by email or phone at 604-822-6115.
Requirements and work permits
Details of what's required for you and accompanying family members to enter Canada will depend on two things: the type of appointment you've been offered, and your citizenship.
