2020 Alumni Travel - COVID-19 Community Update 

The University is advising all members of its community to avoid any non-essential travel. There are many travel restrictions which York has communicated and can be found on our dedicated website.

On March 16, 2020, the Government of Canada outlined additional measures related to entry into Canada based on the advice received by public health officials to limit the spread of this pandemic and to provide support to Canadian travellers. Please refer to the Government of Canada Official Global Travel Advisory.

Our travel partners are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and how it impacts upcoming trips. Please review any cancellation insurance coverage you have purchased. For the most up-to-date information about specific trips, please contact our travel partner directly.
