The Government of Canada has added nine more hotels at Toronto’s Pearson Airport to its list of ones approved for international arrivals to quarantine in.
The government initially approved only four hotels near Canada’s busiest airports. But these new additions mean travellers have 13 options to choose from.

Those who are returning to Canada must now take a test, and as they await the result, they will be required to be in quarantine for three days at a supervised hotel. Accommodations will cost $2,000 per person – which includes the cost of private tests and the hotel stay.
Travellers who receive a negative test result can go home to quarantine with enhanced supervision. But those who test positive will be taken to a government quarantine facility.
All bookings should be made directly through the hotel. These are the approved Toronto stays:
Alt Hotel Pearson Airport (previously approved)
Four Points by Sheraton Toronto Airport (previously approved)
Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport (previously approved)
Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport (previously approved)
The cost of the hotel stopover will vary by location. The price will include costs associated with the food, room, security, transportation, and infection prevention and control measures.
All passengers will be required to provide their name, date of birth, arrival city and date, payment information, special requests and accessibility concerns, and pet information.
Travellers will receive an email confirmation of their accommodation within four hours of booking.
The stricter border control measures are to limit virus spread, especially as the COVID-19 variants of concern cases increase in the country.
