Despite efforts for a delay, it expected that Canada’s vaccine mandate for essential workers crossing the border, including truck drivers, will go into effect as scheduled on January 15, 2022. This requirement will apply to all truck drivers entering Canada, regardless of nationality (e.g. U.S. drivers and Canadian drivers returning to Canada). Please be advised that for entry into Canada, use of the ArriveCAN app is required. In other words, starting this Saturday, any truck drivers trying to enter Canada must be fully vaccinated with two shots of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine in Canada (except for the Johnson & Johnson single does shot) and must use the ArriveCAN app. It is our understanding that if a driver does not meet both requirements, he/she will be turned away starting January 15th.
The Biden Administration's mandate on foreign drivers entering the U.S. goes into effect on January 22, 2022.
