Upon arrival, be prepared to provide ArriveCAN receipt, proof of vaccination and other typical documentation (I.e. passport).

REQUIREMENTS FOR US CITIZENS RETURNING TO THE US FROM CANADA
Just your passport!
ArriveCAN is very straightforward and guides you step by step either via the app or in your web browser. One "head of party" can complete for all guests travelling together, or everyone can submit separately.
All information must be input into the ArriveCAN app within 72 hours prior to arrival in Canada.
The app will ask you to input contact information for you and the people you are travelling with, purpose of trip, date of arrival, port of entry (Ex: Fort Frances Bridge), proof of vaccination, and your quarantine location (Pine Cliff Lodge, 8505 Ontario 72, Sioux Lookout ON P8T 0A7)
