This is not the COVID forum - unless you want the thread moved to the COVID forum, the political BS needs to stop.
and you thought Canadians were nice polite folks - who didn't go for political BS.
LOL

........In the meantime, if everyone did their homework and followed the rules, it might help all of us when travelling internationally. If you don't think it's right or fair,then

complaining to your MP and MPP/MLA/MNA
is probably a more productive route, IMO.
My MP is the minister in charge of the Canadian Passport Office
I am not sure " a more productive route " is a concept my MP understands .
LOL

Funny - mine is minister in charge of tourism. Maybe we could get them together. ;)

Actually, I generally like my MP. He's a nice guy - actually had dinner with him once.

I believe it has to be filled out within 72 hours of arrival.

The first time it took me about 30 minutes to fill out everything . Subsequent uses are much quicker because your just updating stuff like
arrival date - flight info - port of entry / border crossing

You can have multiple people travelling together on one submission , and who is listed can change.
We recently picked up our son & his partner at the Buffalo airport . All of us were on one submission when we crossed into Canada at the Peace Bridge.

You can also fill it out on a laptop or desk top computer. When you submit it - an automatic email is sent back to you with a QR code / reference number .
We have only done it via this route. I prefer not to have apps on my phone for privacy reasons.
[also I am currently using an I phone 4 which does not have an operating system compatible to the ArriveCan app]

Each time we have entered Canada since March the CBSA agent has scanned my passport and said they could see the submission information on their screen.
I have taken a screen shot of the QR code / ref number on my laptop and a photo on my cell phone as a back up.

72 hours before arrival, 1 submission for your group.
