Whether it’s to experience different cultures, admire new landscapes, or even visit family members- travel is an experience that many Canadians partake in. With the COVID-19 pandemic making travel inaccessible to most, Caddle wanted to determine whether Canadians intend on travelling now that restrictions begin to loosen. This month we asked our panel of over 8,500 Canadians what their intentions surrounding travel would be in the future.
Fully vaccinated foreign nationals may be allowed to enter the country for discretionary travel if they meet specific criteria. On August 9th, American citizens and permanent residents of the United States that meet specific criteria can enter, on September 7th all foreign nationals may enter who are fully vaccinated, and the 3-night hotel stopover will be eliminated for all travellers arriving by air on August 9th. This is exciting news for travellers to look forward to!
According to StatCan, Canadians took 363,200 return trips home from abroad in May- an 11% monthly increase! But, will this number continue to increase or are Canadians content with their staycations?
Up, Up, and Away!
