Arrival Services

When you arrive in Canada for the fall 2020 semester, you are required to quarantine for 14 days  according to Government of Canada regulations. Here’s a checklist for quarantining when you arrive: Quarantine Checklist.

We can arrange that!

Through our partner Maple Assist, Durham College will arrange an airport pickup and your first two nights of your quarantine for FREE. For the rest of your quarantine at the same location, we were able to secure low rates. And for those who need financial assistance to help with the cost of quarantining, you may be eligible for a bursary.

The ArriveCAN mobile app can help speed up your arrival process in Canada, save time with border and public health officers, and provide updates during your 14-day quarantine. Submit your information easily and securely using the app within 48 hours before arriving in Canada. You can use the ArriveCAN mobile app to:

  • provide mandatory information that is required for entry into Canada
  • reduce your wait time and points of contact at the border
  • provide the Government of Canada with voluntary updates on your quarantine compliance and the development of any symptoms during the 14 days after arriving in Canada

Download the ArriveCAN app (iOSAndroid or web format). Make sure you have the official version by downloading it here.

The COVID Alert mobile app is a tracking app that can let individuals know of possible exposures before any symptoms appear. The app uses Bluetooth to exchange random codes with nearby phones. The random codes come from devices of people who tell the app they have tested positive for COVID-19. If you have been near one of those codes in the past 14 days, you will get a notification.
