Looks like it applies to (not limiting) moving residence and employment. Nothing re: travel. Knowing the SCoC's rulings in general, I kind of think it'll uphold provincial actions in/for this specific instance and set of circumstances over as individual's freedom.

Here are details for quarantine in B.C. (after traveling internationally):

Unless you are exempt, all international travellers returning to B.C. are required by law to self-isolate for 14 days and complete a self-isolation plan. Travellers must submit a B.C. self-isolation plan and complete the federal ArriveCAN application for approval prior to their return to B.C., or upon arrival. (Last updated: June 26, 2020):
https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safe ... -on-return

"it is up to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to verify that people are respecting the law. For most, it begins with a phone call. Designated screening officers start calling incoming travellers on the fifth day of their isolation period, and attempts continue for three consecutive days. "

To save the travel industry, we must travel now and tell everyone to stop listening to Dr. B. Henry and the mainstream media.

https://manitoba.ca/covid19/protection/soe.html

In general, anyone arriving in Manitoba is required to self-isolate for 14-days upon arrival to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, there are exceptions to this requirement specified in the order.

In particular, Manitoba residents who have travelled to "western Canada* or "northwestern Ontario** are exempt from the self-isolation requirements when they return to Manitoba if they have not travelled outside of western Canada or northwestern Ontario and are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19. Residents of western Canada or northwestern Ontario are also exempt, if they have not travelled to another country or any part of Canada outside of western Canada or northwestern Ontario in the 14-day period immediately before entering or arriving in Manitoba and are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19.

*Western Canada means British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. (as defined in the order).

**northwestern Ontario means that portion of Ontario that is located west of Terrace Bay (as defined in the order)

Other persons who are exempt from the self-isolation requirements include: :

transporters of goods and people such as truckers and pilots
people traveling to facilitate shared parenting arrangements
people traveling for emergency medical purposes
people travelling to Western Canada and northwestern Ontario for business or recreational purposes.
so if i drive to Banff, I will be quarantined in Manitoba when I passing through for 14 days, I mean I probably will not just drive through the whole province in 1 day, if I stay in province for say 3 days?

For MB, you have to self isolate for 14 days total before you can go about in public. If visit a relative in MB for 3 days, then you'll be literally self isolating at that relative's place for the entire time of 3 days

You are allowed to travel straight thru without self isolating, but you need to stick to the direct routes

Agreed. I am travelling, abroad.
Going to spend a few months and thousands of dollars in a place actually welcoming tourists.
Will be great to stay away from the hysteria and the closed borders mentality that won't go away anytime soon in this country.

so basically this means I have to drive through the province in 1 day, can not stop to take a look around Winnie? now, from Kenora, ON to Regina, SK is about 800KM, I could certainly do this in a long day drive, which is doable but certainly not enjoyable, and I would like to stop and take a look somewhere in MB. heck, that totally defeats the purpose of travelling.

and what about SK, same like MB? I certainly can NOT drive through 2 provinces in a day. that's way too much driving.

Yes, basically driving straight across MB. There's no stopping to "look around" in MB without first self isolating for 14 days .

You should probably contact public health in MB to see exactly what is allowed while transiting thru MB. I would imagine you are allowed to overnight and get food/ gas along the direct transiting routes (i.e. HWY 1 or 16),

that sucks. hope it's not the case in SK, and definitely not in AB, no one is gonna just drive through Banff. I probably should wait till next May or June.

Sad sad sad our dummies at the government don't have brains even to copy other countries, including 3rd World. It's not that hard to just implement one of those quick-test stations where travelers can go and then know the results in hours and avoid the DUMB( did I say dumb?) 14 days of sitting at home. It's the stupidest thing ever, especially when they have the ability to test. Heck, charge and people will still flock, in order to avoid the 14-day nonsense. And imaging the 100s of millions of $$ it would've already brought from all the travelers. We accept up to 100K of border crossers every single day. Imaging the revenues. Plus all the tourists that can come in, get tested and enjoy our country and our businesses?! Imaging the money which we will spend in our own country as we can travel around with no restrictions.
All of this clearly shows. the turd and his people are just dumb and clearly not qualified to run anything other than a school.
I mean, you've heard the news of family members whose other member died being denied entry into a province from another province in order to attend a funeral? Stupidity at the basic level.
Bottom line, if we can't match even some 3rd World countries in their low tech technological advancements then what are we to expect from our economy going forward?? We were always behind pretty much everyone when it comes to Covid and the trend continues. Just sad!

Creating protocols for safe travel is too much for them apparently.

They're betting everything on the vaccine, probably not even considering the possibility the vaccine can't be as effective as expected (virus mutates, for example).
Federal government is so incompetent that I won't be surprised if the vaccine is delayed here - last time I checked, China was holding a shipment to Canada for the phase 3 trials.

I traveled too. Felt so much safer abroad than in Canada where nobody wears masks indoors. Same flying vs taking the bus in Canada where again, nobody wears masks and there is no social distancing.

Community transmission is flourishing, but house arrests for everyone who comes back even from countries where the spread is magnitudes less than canada!
