Provincial Border Restrictions & Quarantine Orders

PROVINCIAL Emergency orders

Updated June 30, 2020

 

Most provinces have adopted Provincial Emergency Orders which set out restrictions on movement and 14-day self-isolation requirements. In most cases, the provinces recognise marine transportation as an essential service and provide exemptions for marine workers. The provincial emergency orders will apply in addition to the federal rules.  

 

At the federal level, Canada has issued guidance on Services and Functions Deemed Essential. Under the federal approach, essential marine workers include marine related businesses such crew, port workers, equipment operators, longshoremen, marine pilots, marine agents, representatives of foreign ship owners, maintenance workers, tug captains, etc. These guidelines are only advisory in nature (and therefore do not replace Provincial Emergency Orders).

 

IMPORTANT: Marine transportation workers travelling within and across provinces and territories for businesses purposes should carry with them a copy of TC SSB 09-2020, along with any relevant provincial bulletins (see below) and an employment confirmation letter to facilitate identification (as essential workers). The Federation has developed a proposed employment identification template letter (as a guidance only).
