Quarantine resources

Welcome message

MITT welcomes international students for the 2021-2022 academic year. International students traveling to Canada and Manitoba must follow government regulations for the COVID-19 pandemic to keep travellers and communities safe. This resource guide outlines what international students must do while traveling, and once you arrive in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to meet the requirements for quarantine.

Please make sure to read through this guide carefully so that you are prepared for a smooth journey to Canada and can start your studies at MITT successfully.

If you have any questions, contact MITT Pre-Arrival Help Line at 1 204 989 7342 or use the chatbot at www.mitt.ca/international.

Please note the following distinction between “quarantine” and “self-isolation”
Manitoba Public Health advises that quarantine is a legal term used if someone is not sick.  If someone tests COVID-19 positive, they would have to self-isolate. The contacts to the positive COVID-19 patient would have to continue to quarantine, while the COVID-19 patient would have to self-isolate.

COVID-19 Toolkit

The Government of Canada has developed a bilingual, COVID-19 Travel Toolkit that you can download here. The toolkit compiles frequently asked questions, as well as links for additional information on key topics, including:

  • Travel information for individuals arriving to Canada by air, land or water
  • Information on testing and quarantine requirements
  • Information on exemptions from testing and quarantine requirements
  • Information on exemptions for fully vaccinated travellers
  • Links to COVID-19 information and digital resources

Information on COVID-19: Manitoba Health and Seniors Care

Province of Manitoba has taken great measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure all those living in our province stay safe and healthy.

Please refer to the Province of Manitoba website (https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/index.html) for up-to-date information that reminds all students how to protect themselves and others during this time.

What is the differences between the Manitoba Immunization Card and the Pan-Canadian Proof of Vaccination Credential (PVC)?

Manitoba Immunization Card

The Manitoba immunization card is a convenient and secure way for eligible Manitobans to prove their immunization status at non-essential services, businesses, or events within Manitoba. It includes your first and last name and your vaccination status in a QR code. When scanned by the Manitoba Verifier app, the QR code will validate your proof of immunization.

The Pan-Canadian Proof of Vaccination Credential (PVC)

The Pan-Canadian PVC is a "a reliable way to show proof of your COVID-19 vaccination history when travelling internationally and within Canada." It contains your full name, date of birth, date(s) of vaccination, brand(s) of vaccine, lot number, and country of vaccination in a QR code. All of this information is available when the QR code is scanned from your mobile device or printed hard copy.

Please refer this page from Manitoba Government to see more details.

Fully vaccinated travellers

Fully Vaccinated Students

Effective April 25, 2022, at 00:01:00 EDT, all fully vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to provide a quarantine plan upon entry. Furthermore, fully vaccinated travellers arriving to Canada on or after April 25, 2022, will no longer be federally required to do the following for 14 days after arriving:

  • mask while in public spaces
  • monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms
  • quarantine if another traveller in the same travel group exhibits signs or symptoms or tests positive; and
  • maintain a list of close contacts and locations visited
  • All travellers are still required to use ArriveCAN (free mobile app or website) to provide mandatory travel information within 72 hours of their arrival to Canada and/or before boarding a plane or cruise ship destined for Canada, including:
    • contact and travel information, and
    • vaccination information and proof of vaccination (if applicable)

Fully vaccinated travellers who do not submit their information into ArriveCAN:

  • won't be eligible for the fully vaccinated traveller exemption (i.e., they may have to submit a pre-entry test result and suitable quarantine plan, quarantine and undergo testing in Canada)
  • may face additional delays at the border for public health questioning; and
  • may be subject to fines or other enforcement action

All travellers, regardless of vaccination status, must also continue to wear a mask throughout their entire travel journey.

While some federal requirements are being lifted for certain eligible travellers, all travellers entering Canada by air, land or water must adhere to the federal requirements along with those outlined by their province or territory.

Details of the announcement can be found at Government of Canada announces additional easing of border measures effective April 25 - Canada.ca.

How the new border measures may affect MITT international students:

  • Students should check if they are eligible to enter Canada and meet all entry requirements before heading to the border
  • Students are recommended to be fully vaccinated to travel to Canada. Unless otherwise exempt, all travellers eligible to enter Canada who do not qualify as fully vaccinated will continue to be tested with COVID-19 molecular tests on arrival and on Day 8, while they quarantine for 14 days. This includes unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travellers
  • Students will no longer need to provide a quarantine plan before entering Canada, but students entering Canada continue to be required to input their mandatory information in ArriveCAN within 72 hours before their arrival in Canada and/or before boarding a cruise ship or airplane destined for Canada. Students who arrive without completing their ArriveCAN submission may have to test on arrival and quarantine for 14 days, regardless of their vaccination status
  • Students arriving to Canada from any country, who qualify as fully vaccinated, may need to take a COVID-19 molecular test on arrival if selected for mandatory random testing. Students selected for mandatory random testing are not required to quarantine while awaiting their test result
  • Students who have already recovered from COVID-19 and can provide proof of a positive molecular test result (taken at least 10 calendar days and no more than 180 calendar days before entering Canada), are encouraged to bring that proof with them when travelling to Canada
  • Fully vaccinated students arriving to Canada on or after April 25, 2022, will no longer be federally required to mask while in public spaces however, this new measure only applies after students have completed their travel journey. Students must continue to wear a mask during their entire travel journey, and will be informed by government officials at the border when the mask may be removed
  • While no longer required in some cases, masks are an effective individual public health measure that people can easily implement to protect themselves and others. When layered with other public health measures, a well-constructed, well-fitting and properly worn respirator or mask can help prevent a person from getting and spreading COVID-19
  • Students travelling with children or dependent should refer to Travel to Canada: Requirements for COVID-19 vaccinated travellers for requirements
  • Students can contact MITT Pre-Arrival Help Line (Immigration Services) at 204 989 7342 or immigrationservices@mitt.ca for travel-related questions

Before you travel

All MITT students and co-arriving immediate family members (vaccinated and non-vaccinated) must have 14-day quarantine plans made in collaboration with MITT in advance of their arrival to Canada.

International students must consult with MITT to ensure they understand and meet the criteria for quarantine exemption. Please contact MITT Immigration Services Advisor for consultation.

Before you travel to Canada, you must have full study permit approval (Port of Entry Letter of Introduction or a valid study permit) AND a valid entry visa (TRV or eTA).

Have not received Port of Entry Letter of Introduction AND the entry visa yet?

If you received MITT Letter of Acceptance, but your study permit or entry visa (TRV or eTA) application is still in processing at IRCC, you may choose to start your program online from outside Canada and continue study from outside Canada until your program starts on-campus delivery.

Make sure to check on-campus delivery start dates at this link (mitt.ca/current-students/important-dates) and arrive in Winnipeg at least a few weeks before on-campus delivery starts.

If you think the visa office closure or study permit processing time would make you unable to travel to Canada in time when on-campus delivery starts, please contact MITT Immigration Services Advisor at immigrationservices@mitt.ca. Current MITT students must discuss your situation with your instructor.

  • If you are fully vaccinated, Make sure to review information for COVID-19 vaccinated travellers entering Canada and the checklist of what you need to have ready at the border.

  2. Confirm the location of your 14-day quarantine accommodations (Only for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated adult dependents and youth 12 to 17 years of age)
    Quarantine accommodation in Manitoba:
    • Book a safe quarantine accommodation (e.g., hotel or homestay) in Winnipeg for your quarantine. Please book from the accommodation options listed below.
    Once you have booked your long-term housing arrangements (e.g., homestay, private housing), contact them to confirm whether you are able to self-isolate there for 14 days upon arrival to Canada. Some accommodation providers may allow you to safely quarantine in this space, while others may require you to complete your 14-day quarantine prior to moving into your accommodations. In the event you are eligible to move-in upon arrival to Canada, provide your accommodations provider confirmation on your arrival date/time. Confirm with them if they provide transportation from the airport to your accommodations upon arrival to Winnipeg.

    In the event you are required to self-isolate before moving into your permanent accommodations, provide your accommodations provider confirmation on your arrival date/time, along with your plan for 14-day quarantine.

    For your safe arrival in Canada and compliance with our COVID-19 readiness plan, MITT recommends you to use one of the following accommodation options:
    1. Hotel
      • Visit Winnipeg Quarantine Hotels [PDF] to review the hotel contact information, price and service details. Prices and service details are subject to change.
    2. Homestay
      • Canada Homestay Network (CHN) manages Homestay for your safe arrival and quarantine
      • A new accommodation option, the Arc Residence on Pembina Highway, will be open any day and is accepting applications from students
    3. Language Canada Study Safe Corridor arrival and quarantine package
    4. Airbnb
      • You may book a separate unit in a house through Airbnb, as per the Manitoba Provincial instructions. Your isolation location should be a separate unit, and it can’t be a bedroom in a multi-tenant house. A basement suite would count, but your room must be excluded from others, and you should avoid any potential contact with persons living in the same household
    Need help with searching for a short-term accommodation? Contact Pre-Arrival Help Line (204 989 7342 or immigrationservices@mitt.ca) or International Student Inquiry at (International@mitt.ca or 204 989 6500) to receive information and support.
  3. Determine what services are available by your 14-day self-isolation accommodation provider
    Confirm if they:
    • Provide airport transportation upon arrival
    • Provide meal delivery services and, if so, how often and at what cost
    • Provide bedsheets, towels, and other supplies
  4. Book your airport pick-up services
    If your accommodation provider listed above does not provide airport pickup services, it is recommended you pre-book transportation services. Some possible options are listed below. In all cases, you will be required to wear a mask on your way to your self-isolation location.

    Using taxi from the airport to the place of quarantine is not recommended.  However, it is recognized that you may not have alternative transportation.  If you are taking taxis from the airport, you are required to wear a mask and only those in the same household who will isolate together are permitted to share a taxi.  Limousines are another alternative.
  5. Positive arrival test, symptoms, or exposure after your arrival
    Read the information located on the Government of Canada’s website. Monitor for symptoms for 14 days after your arrival.

    If a fully vaccinated traveller or unvaccinated child under 12 years of age tests positive: If a parent, step-parent, guardian, or tutor a child has travelled with experiences symptoms or tests positive:
    • unvaccinated children under 12 years of age must quarantine for 14 days and monitor for symptoms
    • report your test results and/or symptoms to PHAC by calling 1 833 641 0343
    If a person you travelled with develops symptoms or tests positive, you must begin a 14-day quarantine period starting from your last exposure to the person.

    You must provide proof of your test results, if asked, to any federal, provincial, territorial or municipal government official or peace officer.
  6. Pack appropriately for your 14-day self-isolation
    Pack things you will need for your travel as well as for your 14-day self-isolation period upon arrival.

    Aside from the usual items you would pack, such as clothing and toiletries, some suggested items to help you through travel to Canada and self-isolation include:
    • Prescription medication
    • Face masks
    • Thermometer
    • Printed copies of documents, including those listed in the During travel section of this guide
    • Laptop, phone, and chargers to keep connected with your family and friends while self-isolating
    • Activities for self-isolation, such as books and games
    • Bedsheets and towels (depending if your housing arrangements require you to bring your own)
    • A credit card to ensure you can purchase delivery services when needed
  7. Plan your arrival in Canada
    • Download the ArriveCAN app to your mobile phone and enter your personal information up to 48 hours before arriving in Canada. This will speed up your arrival through Immigration Canada at the port of entry, meaning you will spend less time with border and health officers.

Alternative isolation accommodation

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Alternative Isolation Accommodation (AIA) program was established to develop safe options for those requiring a safe space to self-isolate. Two types of AIAs have been established. The first, offers individuals experiencing homelessness a space to self-isolate if they tested positive for COVID-19 or if they are suspected to have it.

The second offers health care workers and other Manitobans who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are suspected to have the virus, a place to self-isolate if they do not have access to a private bedroom and bathroom in their home or if they live with someone who is at greater risk from COVID-19 (e.g. immune compromised).

Click here for more information on Manitoba’s AIA program.

MITT will conduct regular, weekly check-ins with students (via MITT Pre-Arrival Help Line 1 204 989 7342 or immigrationservices@mitt.ca) for updates on their mental and physical health as well to remind students of the importance of the daily COVID-19 symptoms self-assessment.

Quarantine/self-isolate safe

If you tested positive for COVID after arriving in Canada, refer to the Shared Health Manitoba COVID-19 public health fact sheet and self-isolation fact sheets (available in multiple languages) (link) to assist you in being prepared and knowledgeable in requirements for self-isolation and to link you to essential services.

It is important that you follow the Government of Canada’s requirements for self-isolation, including:

  • Self-isolating in a location without vulnerable people, such as those over the age of 65 or individuals with underlying medical conditions;
  • Having access to basic necessities such as food and toiletries;
  • Wearing a mask when being transported to your place of self-isolation;
  • Traveling directly from your point of arrival in Manitoba to your place of self-isolation; and
  • Monitoring your health for symptoms of COVID-19 throughout the 14 days of isolation.
  • Report to ArriveCan within 72 hours of your arrival in Canada. Report through the mobile application or online

Students with COVID symptoms will be required to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 using the Manitoba Self Screening Tool.  If a student experiences any symptoms of COVID-19 during the quarantine period, they must follow the directives of the Province of Manitoba.

  • The Screening Tool is available in Interactive Voice Response (IVR) format. Call 1 877 308 9038 or find it online.
  • The Province of Manitoba offers a service called Health Links – Info Santé, which is a bilingual phone-based nursing triage service. They can give you advice on what health-care path should be followed in your specific situation, whether you should stay home, visit the emergency room, or follow another medical plan. They can be contacted at 204 788 8200 or toll-free at 1 888 315 9257.

Self-isolation/quarantine can be difficult for some students, especially those who are energized by interactions with others. It is important that you take care of yourself during this time of isolation and to keep connected with your friends and family using other methods, such as FaceTime and Zoom. Here are a few useful tips to get you through the two-week period:

Covid-19 vaccination information

  • International students in Manitoba can receive a Canadian recognized vaccine.
  • International students can book a vaccine appointment immediately upon arrival to Canada IF they have proof that they intend to stay in Manitoba for at least 14 days.
  • International students with one dose from home country can submit proof of first dose to MB health to book their second dose as long as it’s been 28 days since they received their first dose. Students can receive a first booster dose is at least four months after the last dose in the primary series.
  • Students in quarantine would not be allowed to leave their isolation period to go to vaccination appointment.
  • COVID-19 vaccines and immunization: To obtain official information, visit https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/vaccine/index.html

Covid-19 vaccine eligibility criteria

Immunization Card in Manitoba

  • Details about Immunization Cards in Manitoba: https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/vaccine/immunization-record.html
  • As an international student who has received full vaccination elsewhere, can I receive a Manitoba Immunization card?
    • Yes. International students (who do not have a Manitoba Health Card) can now request a Manitoba immunization Card if they meet the following requirements:
      • have received two doses (or any combination) of Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or a single dose of Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine, with the final dose more than 14 days ago; and
      • have submitted proof of any COVID vaccination(s) received outside of Manitoba to public health, and
      • the data has been recorded in the system
    • You will need to get a record of your vaccination from the jurisdiction you got your vaccine. If the vaccination you received is from an approved brand in Canada (currently, Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson), you can contact your local public health office to have your information recorded. Then, you can request an immunization card. You may contact https://forms.gov.mb.ca/covid-immunization-record-request/index.html to update that information. Individuals can call 1 844 MAN VACC (1 844 626 8222) to speak with an agent, who will provide a client identification number for the digital version of the card. The agent can also request a physical card on behalf of callers.
  • What if the vaccination I received is from a brand not currently approved in Canada?
    • If you have received one or two doses of a vaccine that is not approved by Health Canada but approved by the World Health Organization, you can receive a dose of mRNA vaccine in Manitoba to be considered fully immunized. This dose can be administered at supersites, pop-ups or mobile clinics, or by a health care provider or pharmacist. If you have received three doses of a vaccine not approved by Health Canada, you are also considered fully immunized. At that point, you can then request your Manitoba immunization card by calling 1-844-MAN-VACC(1 844 626 8222). Click here https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/immunizationrecord/residents.html#immunization-records for more information.
  • What if I am fully vaccinated from outside of Manitoba or Canada, with the Manitoba-approved vaccination requirements but I have to wait for Manitoba Health to verify my records?
    • MITT will provide students in this situation with a vaccination declaration form that they must complete and provide to MITT. Students will need to follow up with evidence of their confirmation from Manitoba Health. As a reminder, it is against our policies for students to falsify any formal documents. See policy AC-1-1 Student Behaviour Policy.
  • Vaccinated While Away? Report Your Vaccine Today!
    • Individuals who received their COVID-19 vaccine outside of the province should have their vaccination information added into Manitoba's immunization system. In order to do this, you will need proof of immunization from the jurisdiction where you received your vaccine. If the vaccine you received is eligible for use in Canada, you can then bring this proof of immunization to a public health office. Visit this link for more info: https://www.gov.mb.ca/health/publichealth/offices.html

Maintaining mental health during stressful times

Develop a support network.

Form an online chat group with close friends; stay in contact with your family and reach out to your school advisors and instructors by email. The more people you know at your educational institution, the more connected you’ll feel!

Be active.

Exercise is important for your mental outlook and helps ward off depression. Take a break from your self-isolation boredom and get moving on a regular basis. There are many online home workouts that are useful when quarantining!

Eat well.

Choose a wide variety of healthy, nutritious foods. Eat regularly to keep up your energy and portions that help you feel and perform your best. If you cannot go outside to get your food or living necessities, use one of the delivery services during quarantine.

Get enough sleep.

Sleep is vital to your mental well-being. Go to bed at a reasonable hour and wake up at roughly the same time every day. Jet lag may be a challenge for you as part of your adjustment to your move to Canada, so it might be useful to download meditation or sleep apps that help you develop a regular sleep schedule.

Seek professional help.

You’re not alone and there are many people who can help. Talk to a professional about how you are feeling; talk to your school’s student services team. Don’t just rely on the advice of friends. Sometimes you need more and we’re here to support you.

  • Contact MITT Student Advisor by phone 204 989 6512 or email
  • Learn more about the services and resources Student Services offer on our website

Take a break from watching or reading the news.

Get your news from reliable sources and try not to watch the same stressful stories over and over in the same day. Try not end your day by watching the news before bed.

Personal and arrival information

Please print and complete this form to bring with you on your travels to Canada. Some of this information may be requested of you upon entry to the country.

Study safe at MITT

If you were not selected for arrival test or if you tested negative for the arrival test, you may now attend your classes at MITT campuses, leave your home, and begin to explore MITT campuses and meet your classmates and instructors.

Continue to follow and respect Manitoba Health regulations and directives, including physical distancing from other people in public and washing or sanitizing your hands often.

Remember to use proper coughing and sneezing etiquette (into your elbow, not your hand and if using a tissue, dispose of the tissue in a plastic lined garbage container immediately).

Avoid malls, crowded spaces, and sports where physical distancing is difficult.

If you feel sick at any time, stay at home and be sure to tell your instructor immediately. Use the self-assessment tool, follow directions, and seek medical attention or contact public health authorities if, when, and how it recommends.

Healthcare coverage related to COVID-19

Don’t forget, your health insurance (guard.me International Insurance) offers remote access to doctors as well as mental health support services. Please review details of guard.me healthcare coverage related to COVID-19.
