Thank you for choosing to study at Redeemer University. We are glad that you want to pursue your education training in Canada. There are a few things you will need to be aware of as you prepare to travel. 

You will need to follow all the regulations and protocols that apply to the airline(s) and airport(s) that will be part of your travel to Canada.

You are responsible for being aware and following the COVID protocols that the Canadian government has established for individuals entering Canada. These regulations can be found on the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 travel page and COVID-19 international student page. Please check these pages frequently as these regulations are subject to change.

It is important to note that you may be required to quarantine upon arrival to Canada if you do not meet the criteria for fully vaccinated traveler and are over 18 years (more info here).  Please be sure to read through the current government guidelines and restrictions so that you are prepared should this be required.

As of July 7th, the current Canadian government regulations state that: If you are randomly selected for COVID testing at a Canadian airport or other port of entry, and test positive, you will be required to quarantine (up to 14 days). These regulations may change before the Fall term begins, please stay informed and current by reviewing the information found here.

If you test positive upon arrival at a Canadian airport, you will need to let us know as soon as possible so that we can ensure there is adequate quarantine accommodation available for you on campus. You can reach out to us at akoekkoek@redeemer.ca to advise you will be needing to quarantine and we will then take you directly to an on campus quarantine location. 

Note: Redeemer University will NOT be able to accommodate guests or parents traveling with you who also may need to quarantine. They are responsible for their own quarantining arrangements.

All first year International Students will be offered transportation from the airport to Redeemer’s campus upon their arrival to Canada in September but they will need to find their own transportation to and from airports/buses/trains for any future travel.
