If you are travelling by plane from and within Canada, you are required to bring your own face covering. In light of the evolving situation with COVID-19, all passengers and non-passengers must wear a face covering and place it over their mouth and nose before entering the screening checkpoint. You can use disposable or homemade facemasks, scarves, bandanas, or any type of material that covers your nose and mouth and is secured to your head. If you cannot wear a face covering for medical or health reasons, please let the screening officers know before going through the checkpoint. Here’s some other changes we’ve made at the checkpoint.
At airport security checkpoints across the country, security screening of passengers and their belongings is conducted by CATSA’s screening officers prior to their entry into the secure area of an airport.
Screening officers use a variety of screening technologies and procedures to prevent passengers from carrying prohibited items beyond the screening checkpoint.
