The Best Accommodation and Quarantine Plan in Canada

This is the time that Cornerstone International Community College of Canada’s students can come to Canada.


Since the Canada Border Services Agency decided to ease current border measures and requirements for international students, having a quarantine plan in Canada became mandatory to enter the country.


All colleges that have approval from the government will be responsible for its students’ accommodation and tracking services after students’ arrival.


The Cornerstone COVID-19 Readiness Plan was approved by the government and Cornerstone is allowed to reopen to international students who are not currently in Canada.

Accommodation During Quarantine in Canada

During Covid-19, there are some travel restrictions for international students who would like to start or continue their education within Canada.

FAQ for Quarantine Plan of Cornerstone College

Why do I need to pay a fee of $150 CAD?

This cost covers the administrative fees involved with the new quarantine protocols that have been enforced by the Canadian Government.

What is this regulation?

Cornerstone is liable for every student during their quarantine period, meaning that you will be contacted and checked on daily during your quarantine stay to make sure you are complying with the regulations in place. Also, we are available if special assistance is required. 

What happens after the payment?

We have partnered with the company Vanmates, who will be following up to either find you a quarantine place or to give you instructions for the self-arranged quarantine procedures.

Do I need to take a COVID-19 test prior to coming to Canada?

No, the Canadian government does not require you to take a test, however, quarantine is mandatory. 

Can I arrange my own accommodation?

No, you can still arrange your own accommodation and quarantine plan as long as it complies with the quarantine protocol. Please bear in mind we still need to approve your accommodation and it might be denied if it does not follow the safety protocols. Lastly, the $150 fee is still required to cover the administrative fee for us to monitor every student daily.

Can I arrange my own transportation?

Yes, you may arrange your own transportation but you are still required to pay the $150 fee to pay the administrative fee.

What happens if I don’t fill out this form?

You might not be eligible for entering the country. Canada requires the College and the student to have a quarantine plan upon arrival. If you have already booked a quarantine place and we are not notified, you might be sent back to your home country. 

How long does it take to confirm my quarantine location?

It will take approximately 2-3 business days.

How early should I fill out this application?

As soon as you can, preferably before/on the same day you purchase your flight ticket.

Is the $150 refundable?

The fee is non-refundable.

What are the fines for not following the quarantine protocol?

Fines for not following the quarantine protocols can be up to $750,000 CAD and 6 months of imprisonment.

Can I leave my place during the quarantine period?

Yes, you can go to open spaces as long as you stay 2 feet apart and you wear gloves and a mask at all times. You can learn more about quarantine.

Who is going to pick me up at the airport?

Our local partner will contact you in 1 business day after you complete the Quarantine Plan Form to provide details about arrival and instructions.

Do you provide accommodation after the quarantine?

Yes, we do. Please refer to Vanmates for post-quarantine options.
