Ottawa updates for visitors

COVID-19 Update

Ottawa Tourism’s top priority is the health and safety of our community and our visitors. Ottawa Tourism encourages all visitors to fully review travel requirements (summarized below) before travel, and to follow all public health measures while visiting Ottawa. 

Proof of vaccination and masks are not required in indoor public spaces in Ontario or Québec, although individual establishments may still ask their customers to wear a mask. Please verify exact conditions with any businesses or attractions you may plan to visit to get up-to-date information.

Domestic and international travel no longer require proof of vaccination, use of the ArriveCAN mobile app, or pre-arrival testing.

Ottawa Tourism has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp, which recognizes organizations that have adopted standardized protocols regarding health and hygiene. This exemplifies the organization’s commitment to the safety and wellbeing of the destination, its residents and community members, and of Ottawa Tourism’s clients and stakeholders.
