From 1 October Canada lifted all remaining COVID 19 restrictions, including vaccination and mask requirements for flights and trains.
The move is likely to boost the Canadian travel industry, already booming after months of lull during the pandemic.
Canadian carriers were also pressing for an end to mask mandates on flights, citing thousands of incidents of non-compliance this year alone.
"As Canadians and international visitors look to make travel plans, the long-awaited removal of all remaining measures effective 1 October 2022 will further expedite recovery for our industry and the Canadian economy," Canada's second-largest carrier WestJet Airlines said in a statement.
A requirement for travelers to wear masks on planes and trains has also be dropped. Cruise ship passengers and crew would also no longer be subject to vaccine requirements or COVID testing.
