Update on mandatory mask-wearing at YQB

23 jun

June 23, 2022 - Wearing a mask is no longer mandatory in the public interior spaces of the terminal.

However, Transport Canada maintains the mask requirement for all regulatory processes, which includes:

  • Security checkpoints for passengers and non-passengers (CNP and CNPV);
  • Boarding;
  • The flight;
  • The customs area.

Wearing a mask remains an effective measure to limit the spread of COVID-19. It is therefore everyone's responsibility to choose whether or not to wear it.
