ArriveCAN Flop?

The ArriveCAN app, no longer mandatory as a tool to track the health information of arrivals into Canada, may end up being a flop as an optional digital arrival tool.

As CBC News reports, only 320,000 travellers out of 2.4 million international arrivals to YUL, YYZ and YVR have actually used it since the app became optional.

However, the federal government is still expanding the option to more airports. YWG, YHZ and YQB have been adding ArriveCAN for arrivals since OCT and it will be made available at YEG, YYC and YOW in the coming months, said CBSA.

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino's office defended the app, despite the low usage numbers, saying it’s a time-saving tool that allows submission of a customs declaration in advance.
