Covid-19 Effect on Canadian Immigration

As of July 6, 2020, the Canadian government has announced the following in relation to the Covid-19 restrictions and their effect on Canadian immigration:

1. For any person arriving in Canada:

When you arrive in Canada, we’ll assess your health before you leave the port of entry. You must have a plan to quarantine for 14 days when you arrive in Canada. This is mandatory, even if you have no symptoms.

If you don’t have a plan, you shouldn’t travel to Canada.

2. International Students:

Any student who has a valid study permit may enter Canada to attend their school.

You will need to pass a health test administered by the airline.

You will need to have a quarantine plan for the first two weeks immediately after your arrival.

Your working hours (20 hours per week) will not be effected after the quarantine period.

3. Holders of Permanent Residence Visas

You may arrange to land and activate your PR provided you have a clear quarantine plan for 14 days when you arrive in Canada.

  1. Hello, I would like to receive assistance, because I have some doubts, first of all, I am in the process of going to work in Canada, in the collection of strawberries, supposedly for a temporary job of 6 months, the intermediary person who is leading the process He has charged us an approximate $ 207.00 CAD, and has sent us a supposed eta hearing and we are waiting to leave because he tells us that the government has not yet lifted the restrictions for foreign workers, so I have taken the time to look online the authenticity of this, and verify through a Canada page if my eta visa was valid and no results were found, I am somewhat scared that it turns out to be fraud, I would like to receive some information from you if this could be true or how I could check it and if it turns out not, how could I immigrate to work in Canada as soon as possible, I await your answer, thank you.
