Air passengers refusing to quarantine in a specified government hotel are typically given fines around $3000. The federal government has handed out hundreds of these fines since February 22, 2021. According to CBC News, the government could not reveal the total number of people who violated the rules and did not receive a COVID-19 test.
The CBC also found no evidence of fines being issued for passengers arriving in Montreal or Calgary. These cities are two out of the only four cities in all of Canada that are allowing international flights during the pandemic.
Allan Prout, a police officer of Yorkton, Saskatchewan admittedly refused the mandatory hotel quarantine. Prout denied the hotel stay because the price was too expensive and “he wanted to do his full 14-day quarantine at his house”. He is yet to receive any fines or warnings from the federal government.
