Travel advisories issued by the Canadian government have become a frequent occurrence, but the government is warning travelers against taking unnecessary risks with them.
On Monday, Transport Canada issued travel advisories to residents of the Canadian capital, Ottawa and other major cities that included information about travel restrictions, restrictions on travel to certain places and a list of prohibited locations.
The advisory included information for individuals who live in the following areas:Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Halifax, Helsinki, Montreal, Nanaimo, Quebec City, Saskatoon, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
The advisory is issued by Transport Canada based on a review of all relevant information from travel warnings issued by various authorities in Canada.
While there are no specific restrictions on who can or cannot travel in Canada, some travellers are being cautioned to make sure they take necessary precautions when traveling.
For example, the advisory advised that people living in areas where drinking and/or smoking is permitted may have to stop and drink and/ or smoke at their homes before or after leaving the country.
It also advised that individuals who have a health or safety concern should seek medical advice.
The advice also advised people to be vigilant about their use of social media, and to ensure that they use the same passwords as when using a smartphone.
