COVID-19: Update for plan members regarding travel and vaccine information

The winter and spring breaks are typically busy travel times. After several months of travel restrictions and advisories, we are all eager to get away.
Travel updates

The Government of Canada has lifted all non-essential travel advisories, both abroad and in between provinces. However, travelers are highly encouraged to be fully vaccinated. The best way to protect yourself, your family and those most at risk of severe illness from COVID-19 is to follow public health guidelines and travel advisories.

Visit the Government of Canada website for travel-related information, including recommendations and advisories, before you travel.
