Update as of January 23, 2021
***PLEASE NOTE*** Prince Edward Island has temporarily suspended its participation in the Atlantic Travel Bubble until at least February 16, 2021 to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the region.
Until the Atlantic Travel Bubble is reopened, all non-residents of PEI, including other residents of Atlantic Canada, must apply for pre-travel approval and must self-isolate for 14 days when traveling to PEI.
We hope that PEI is able to rejoin the bubble soon and we can safely meet with our Atlantic Canadian neighbours once again. Please stay tuned for updates in mid February.
On May, 1, 2020 the PEI Government launched the Renew PEI, Together outlining the guiding principles and phased approach to reopening businesses, services and public spaces. The plan will be implemented in four distinct phases with a progressive lifting of public health measures on individuals, communities and organizations over three-week periods. Progression will be gradual and constantly evaluated based on the latest public health information from PEI’s Chief Public Health Office. Decisions during each phase will be based on public health evidence and continuous monitoring. If there are concerns about moving into a next phase, progress will be slowed, halted or even reversed to continue to protect the health and safety of Islanders.
