Explore Squamish, Responsibly

UPDATED: September 8th, 2021

On June 29th, the Province of BC announced its plan to bridge to Step 3 in safely bringing Canadians back together again. BC’s restart program is a careful, four-step plan focused on protecting people and safely getting life back to normal.

Effective July 1st, Canada-wide recreational travel will now be permitted. There is also a return to normal hours for liquor service at restaurants, bars and pubs. Mask wearing is recommended in indoor public spaces for those 12 and older who are not fully vaccinated.

Effective August 9th, Canada will allow entry to fully vaccinated American citizens and permanent residents (currently residing in the US) for leisure travel. If you meet the entry criteria, fully vaccinated travellers do not have to quarantine upon arrival to Canada. 

Effective September 7, 2021, Canada has re-opened its borders to international visitors for non-essential travel, including tourism. Arriving passengers must be fully vaccinated and meet entry requirements.

For information on current restrictions including Step 3 details, please visit BC's Restart.
