As per the latest rules, travelers to Canada are required to get tested for COVID-19 and get a negative test before boarding the plane to Canada. Upon arriving in Canada, they will be tested again. From February 22, 2021, the travelers must stay at one of the hotels mentioned above and wait for the test results in Canada.
If the test result comes out as negative, the traveler can go to their destination to stay in Canada and complete their 14-day compulsory quarantine from there.
