A federal Order in Council (OIC) was introduced this week (February 14, 2021) which is causing major concern for members of the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA). The recently published Order in Council states the following:  “As of February 22, 2021, all travellers, whether arriving by land or air will be required to submit their travel and contact information, including a suitable quarantine plan, electronically via ArriveCAN before crossing the border or boarding a flight to Canada.”  CTA is currently clarifying with the Government of Canada whether this requirement applies to essential workers (truck drivers) and if it also applies to U.S. truck drivers entering the country. If the Government of Canada confirms it is defining all travellers to include essential workers, CTA is asking that the federal government delay implementation of this OIC for the trucking industry.
