Humber College's COVID-19 Readiness Plan Approved
Watch the video to see all the steps required for you to safely travel to Canada at this time and to begin your studies at Humber.
We are recommending that students travel to Canada 2-3 weeks before their classes begin to give sufficient time to prepare the start of the semester. If you arrive more than a month before classes, you may be refused entry by the Border Services Officer. If you come during a break and well before the next semester begins, you may be refused entry. For more information, please visit: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/coronavirus-covid19/students.html#arrive
As you prepare to come to Canada, please download iCent App NOW (Google Play or App Store); link on How to use iCent.
*All the future communication will be through iCent App. Therefore, it is essential to download the iCent App NOW! Watch the Humber COVID-19 Arrival iCent App Tutorial.
Please note, ONLY fully vaccinated travellers are allowed to enter Canada.
Travellers can receive their vaccine in any country, and must provide documentation supporting their vaccination in English, French or with a certified translation. Fully vaccinated travellers must upload proof of vaccination in ArriveCan, have no signs or symptoms of COVID-19, must adhere random on-arrival testing. For more information, please visit https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/covid-vaccinated-travellers-entering-canada
Prior to arrival, you and your co-arriving family members are required to do the following:
The ArriveCAN mobile app saves your contact information (name, date of birth and travel document information) for travel at a later date.
If your travel details change before you enter Canada.
If you've already submitted your information and have an ArriveCAN receipt, start over in ArriveCAN. ArriveCAN will clear your previous information.
What is a suitable place of quarantine?
A suitable place of quarantine is one that has access to the necessities of life and is not shared with those at risk of more severe disease.
Do not quarantine in places you can’t separate yourself from those who live with you. For example:
Here is more detailed information from the Government of Canada on Suitable Quarantine Plans.
If you choose not to pursue studies with Humber and would like to apply for a refund, or would like to defer your program to a later intake, see Humber’s international refund/deferral policy for Winter 2022.
When Your Quarantine Starts and Ends
If you test positive for random arrival test, you will need to quarantine for 10 days, beginning on the day you received your test result.
For example, if you arrive at 8:15 am on Friday, October 1, then Thursday is considered day 1 of your quarantine period. Your quarantine period would end 10 full days later, at 11:59 pm on Sunday.
While in Quarantine
Do not leave your place of quarantine unless it is for a medical emergency, an essential medical service or treatment, to obtain a COVID-19 molecular test, or it is pre-authorized by a Quarantine Officer.
Use only private outdoor spaces (i.e. balcony).
Do not have any visits from family or guests.
Do not use shared spaces such as lobbies, courtyards, restaurants, gyms or pools.
Please Note: Humber Residence is not available for quarantine – you will not be allowed to quarantine inside the residence. Those staying in residence must make separate arrangements for their quarantine stay.
If a Humber student needs assistance with quarantine planning, we can assist. Humber has made special arrangements with an airport hotel: Holiday Inn Toronto Airport East to provide a safe, secure, comfortable quarantine location for arriving students. The hotel package includes:
Quarantine Package (student can check-out once they receive the test result):
All students are required to cover the cost of their quarantine stays. Upon arrival, students are required to use a credit card to pay for the cost of the hotel stay.
Upon Arrival: Fully vaccinated travellers arriving by air will be subject to random arrival testing. As a fully vaccinated traveller, you can travel to your place of quarantine without waiting for your arrival test results (if selected for testing), unless it is determined at the border that you do not have a suitable quarantine plan.
Once you are in Canada, please complete the Arrival Check-In Form through iCent to inform us of your arrival test status.
When you arrive at the airport or port of entry you should be ready to present the following documents. Make sure you pack them in your carryon bag and not in your check-in bag:
Based on the documents you present, the border officer will assess you and make a decision to issue your Study Permit.
If you have a placement in your program, you may present the Co-op Letter to the border officer and request to issue a Co-op Work Permit in addition to your Study Permit.
