The Government Has Made Changes To Its Montreal Quarantine Hotels

But non-essential air travellers still need to book a three-night stay.

Canada has updated its list of government-authorized quarantine hotels where non-essential international air travellers must spend up to three nights as they await COVID-19 test results, adding ten hotels in Montreal and removing one.

As of February 21, the federal government had listed four designated hotels near the Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. As of March 2, the list totalled 13 hotels.

The revised list of hotels is as follows:

Aloft Montreal Airport was removed from the Government of Canada's hotel list.

While three of the 13 hotels offer online booking, non-essential travellers can also book their mandatory three-day stay by calling 1-800-294-8253 in North America or 1-613-830-2992 outside of North America.

The line is open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. ET. 

In order to book a hotel, travellers need to have the following information on-hand:

  • Name(s)

  • Date(s) of birth

  • Gender(s) (male, female, or undisclosed)

  • The arrival city and date

  • Payment information

  • Any special requests and accessibility concerns

  • Pet information

  • Email address 

The cost of the hotel stopover varies, but travellers can expect to pay upwards of $2,000 for everything from food to security to transportation and infection prevention measures.

Travellers who fail to provide proof of their hotel booking prior to boarding a flight coming to Canada could be fined $3,000. 

Those who can't pay for the mandatory hotel stay will be considered "a person who is unable to quarantine."

They must follow the directions of a virus screening officer or quarantine officer upon entering Canada to go to a federally designated quarantine facility.

You can find more information on the Government of Canada's webpage.
