Clarification of Ontario restrictions related to COVID-19

April 16th, 2021

To the StFX Community,

Earlier today, the province of Ontario announced further restrictions related to COVID-19, including travel into the province from Quebec, effective Monday, April 19th. This has caused some of our Ontario students (and their families) concern that they would not be able to return to Ontario when their exams are completed sometime on or after April 19th. The Ontario government’s decision today does NOT prevent an Ontario resident from travel into the province.  It also does not prevent a person travelling into Ontario for work purposes nor prevents those who are merely travelling through the province to reach their principal residence in another province.  Upon entering Ontario, students should be prepared to provide any available identification or documentation that supports the reasons for entry into the province.


With the above in mind, all examinations or other assessments previously scheduled shall be maintained.
