EXTREME WEATHER

Emergency Travel Update: As parts of British Columbia have been impacted by heavy rain and flooding, there are highway closures and travel restrictions in place for impacted areas to ensure the movement of essential goods and services. Please check Drive BC for an up-to-date list of the latest restrictions and advisories.

People who are not experienced with winter driving in the mountains are encouraged to use alternatives for travel between the Lower Mainland and Interior, such as regular bus service including along the Coquihalla. Options for bus transportation from the Lower Mainland to Kelowna and Kamloops include companies like Ebus, Rider Express and Mountain Man Mike Bus Service.

As a result of the recent extreme weather, major flooding has caused certain areas in the Fraser Valley to be placed under evacuation. For a comprehensive list of information and ways you can support our Fraser Valley Community click HERE.

COVID-19

Effective September 7, 2021, Canada’s borders are opened to fully vaccinated visitors from any country who meet entry requirements.

All residents and visitors will be required to provide proof of vaccination to access discretionary services in British Columbia. For more details, visit the Government of British Columbia’s website.

We encourage all travellers to be fully informed of the pre-entry and on-arrival public health and testing requirements both federally and provincially. This includes the mandatory use of the ArriveCAN app. Travellers should plan for extra time in the lead up, and upon the arrival of their trip.

For the latest information on travel to Canada including the updated federal requirements and restrictions, please visit the Government of Canada website.

BC tour operators, accommodation providers and attraction hosts have implemented stringent protocols to keep visitors safe, and visitors are asked to return the favour by travelling responsibly this fall and winter.
