Thx everyone for your replies.
Driving through BC after tomorrows news could be challenging. AB & SK, currently a non issue I think.

Would be best to call somebody official who can give you a straight answer. It's a 2000 mile round trip if you get turned back.


Thx Fizz
I'm not sure I'd get a straight answer given all the different jurisdictions involved and how authorities interpret them. As an example looking at the Hull/Ottawa traffic cams currently there seems to be little or no checks on that border.

The Manitoba border is two or three days away from you.
The way they've been flip flopping on this you could get caught half way there... Just saying.

B.C. is shutting down even within the province.

We have a RV rental company relocation deal from Toronto to Vancouver in a week or so which is technically a commercial delivery (I believe). We will have a company letter stating that. How that will be interpreted but any police stops I've no idea. Especially if we're not on a direct route to Vancouver.

Just trying to figure what this journey will be like as more of the country closes down. I think we will have just lost some of our reservations to stay in some of the National Parks.

Any thoughts gratefully appreciated.

Also welcome to share any experiences if you're on the road in the next few+?? weeks.


so here in BC, all provincial campgrounds and hotels are cancling out of "health athority" zone reservation. so me being in the interior health zone cannot take my rv and go camping or stay in a hotel or equivent, in the lower mainland for example. if you are making a living with this job there are exemptions to the travel restrictions (yes I cannot even drive down to vancouver to visit my daughter) but you still wouldnt be able to pull into a campground for the night, you would have to stay in the pull over areas that comercial truckers use to be safe.

Travel within BC is restricted within Health Regions, so travelling in a camper van is asking to be checked at some point or randomly. Probably not the wisest time to be "vacationing" albeit on a "delivery"

Well that’s completely over stepping bounds to restrict outdoor, rural activities.
Even the lib parts of the US have just recently figured out that masks don’t do squat outdoors.
(Or indoors for that fact except to catch the spray from a sneeze or cough)
That’s too bad. Feel soorry for you folks up there.
The only upside to Canada’s restrictions is its saved us many thousands of dollars in cost for our son to play hockey up there....

I feel sorry for the people that think restrictions do not help to slow this pandemic down, sad state of affairs among some people.

When Canada is ready for us Americans to return we shall. Take your time and be as safe as you can be.


At this point, I think it is the other way around. The US has done a far better job of vaccinating than most of Canada.

I'm 56, live in BC and still on the waiting list for any vaccine.

Yes, Canada is way behind the US in vaccinations.
US sits at about 26% fully vaccinated.
Canada sits at about 2.5% fully vaccinated.
