Will Canada Require COVID-19 Vaccinations for Entry?

The answer is most likely, “Yes.” According to the Canadian Health Minister Patty Hajdu, the Canadian government supports the idea of a “vaccine passport” and will come up with a form of vaccine certification to allow vaccinated Canadians to travel internationally. This will likely take the form of a “digital certificate.” Learn more. Check back for updates regarding Canadian entrance/travel requirements.

Closest Airports

Accessing Whistler from anywhere in the world is simple with multiple international airports and direct airport transfers. Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is the closest international airport to Whistler, located 83 miles south of Whistler in BC, Canada. The drive to Whistler takes you along Highway 99, one of the most scenic routes in the world, also known as the Sea to Sky Highway. Along the way, you will drive along ocean, mountains, forests, trails, waterfalls, lakes, and much more! You may spot wildlife from eagle to elk. Vancouver International is serviced by a wide range of commercial international and Canadian airlines.

Attendees can also fly into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) and drive up the scenic coast. The 140-mile scenic drive from Seattle to Vancouver, Canada may allow you to bypass pandemic-related hassles associated with air travel. (Currently, driving into Canada vs. flying allows individuals to bypass quarantines and associated fees. Check back for travel updates relative to Canada.)
