Costs of Tests and Places to get tested in Canada

Some destinations require proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours of departing Canada, and some are waiving this with proof of full vaccination (currently 2 doses). Shoppers and Rexall do these tests in select provinces for $80-$150.  Many destinations allow entry with a negative antigen test which is much cheaper with a cost of only $30 (Rexall) and $40 (Shoppers). Refer to your provincial government website for a testing centre near you. Many destinations have some mandatory questionnaires to be completed – some online, some in advance, some on arrival.  Entry requirements are subject to change, and we will notify our booked customers of material changes.  The charts above is designed as a summary to consider destinations, but the definitive entry requirements will be provided at the time of booking.
