Default Travel updates (CORVID-19)

For anyone travelling to Canada or planning to travel to a lodge/outpost this summer the situation is obviously evolving. We at CFF are hopeful that the measures being taken will help reduce the severity and spread of COVID-19.

We will be posting updates for travellers to Canada in this thread. For the time being here is the link to the government of Canada public health website:

https://www.canada.ca/en/public-heal...-covid-19.html

Please exercise caution, protect yourself, and follow the directions of your respective governments and health agencies.

For the time being the border closure does NOT apply to US citizens and hopefully with the measures being taken the spread of this disease will be reduced and contained allowing life to return to normal in time for the fishing season.

Default State of emergency declared in Ontario

Please see the link below for updates from the Ontario premiers remarks.

https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/202...a-westjet.html

At this time the early and decisive action being taken by the Ontario government is to get ahead and stay ahead of the CORVID-19 outbreak. The federal government is not at this time considering declaring a state of emergency for Canada:

Default Updates to border crossing - Wednesday March 18

It's becoming clear from a number of credible of sources that the border between USA and Canada will be closed for tourism.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/canada...rder-1.5501201

It is clear the the goal is to curtail non-essential travel in order to reduce the spread of CORVID-19. As these steps are being taken early we are hopeful life will return to normal over the next 2 months.

For those with trips scheduled we will obviously address the situation in detail in May when our situation and operations have clarity. In the meantime we are moving to operate the season as normal and are planning and preparing accordingly.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and take action to protect yourself.

P.S. we will provide more info as details as they become available.

Default Update on COVID-19 March 26, 2020

Some very hopeful news from the Italian town of Vo where the first COVID-19 fatality in Italy occurred. As an outfitter I can say there is not yet enough information to have clarity and make sense of these unprecedented circumstances. I can speculate around every potential scenario and how it might play out but the reality is that over the next 30 days the facts will be come much clearer. Once it is clear how the virus is progressing we can make informed and well thought out decisions.

I am hopeful and optimistic that the aggressive measures being taken by our respective governments and health agencies will have a positive impact and allow our lives to return to normal. It is clear from the article below that it is possible to reduce and even stop the spread of this virus.

Default Canadian Border Services

The official CBSA link is posted below outlining the border closure. It appears the situation will be reevaluated on April 20 or 21. The clarity and/or direction provided on April 20/21 will likely allow outfitters to make decisions based on actual circumstances as opposed to speculation. Your patience and understanding is appreciated during these unprecedented times.
