Keeping you up to date
Info to Know – Welcoming You
British Columbia has moved into Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan which means that Boundary Country is welcoming recreational travellers from all over Canada! In addition, as of August 9th, Boundary Country is welcoming fully vaccinated American citizens and permanent residents (currently residing in the US). Americans, assess your eligibility to enter Canada before planning a visit.
Check out our website to learn more about the experiences you can plan for. Our local Visitor Centres will have the latest information on what is open. Follow us on social media to stay updated on current news and events.
Health & Safety
For the health & safety of both residents and visitors, we need your support to ensure a safe experience. The businesses operating in our region are guided by provincial and WorkSafeBC health & safety regulations, plus many are implementing further safety measures. This includes physical distancing and sanitization of hands. Masks are recommended in indoor public places for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated.
- Stay Current with DBC Health & Safety Guidelines
The current travel conditions and regulations are very fluid at the moment, and as a result, can change fairly quickly. Updates will be monitored by Boundary Country and our businesses/business partners but we encourage potential visitors to stay as up-to-date as possible when planning a trip. Also, visitors are recommended to become acquainted with cancellation policies of bookable experiences during this time as there is no uniform standard during this time.
Boundary Country and British Columbia have sustained an extended period of very hot and dry weather conditions. These conditions are expected to persist for the rest of summer. As a result, some areas of our region may be dealing with wildfires. A province-wide campfire ban is currently in place, and air quality advisories should be monitored. Boundary Country is a large region, and there are many areas that are not directly impacted which are open for business and excited to welcome you.
Conditions can change rapidly, and we encourage you to check the latest information before your trip so you can make informed travel decisions. Check-in with your accommodation provider, as well as the Visitor Centres listed below. Here are some other online key resources to help you out:
- BC Wildifre Service – An interactive map of current fires, details on fire bans, tips on wildfire prevention, and more.
- DriveBC – The latest information on detours or closures on roadways in BC.
- BC Parks Wildfire Updates – A list of parks impacted by wildfires.
- Air Quality Health Index Map – Hourly updates on air quality from across BC.
Refer to our Service Directory where all businesses can be found. If a business is temporarily closed it will be noted with a closed image.
