Compassionate exemptions

For partially and non-vaccinated travellers, the federal government has in place a compassionate exemption online application process for those seeking a limited release from quarantine to visit a patient, client or resident who is receiving critical care for a life-threatening illness or imminent end-of-life care, and/or to attend a funeral or celebration of life event.
