As Ontario moves into Step Three of the Roadmap to Reopen, and following Public Health guidelines, the University is slightly easing international research-related travel restrictions for faculty, postdoctoral fellows and research staff.
Requests for international research-related travel must be identified and detailed in an approved Research Management Plan. Those travelling internationally for approved research must follow all Government of Canada travel regulations, including quarantine on return to Canada.
International research-related travel continues to be suspended for all students (undergraduate and graduate) as current government travel advisories restrict student travel as per the University’s Safe Travel policy.
A reminder that any research-related international travel approval is contingent on standing enrollment in the University’s Extended Health benefits plan with valid emergency out-of-country coverage.
If you are unsure whether or not you are enrolled in in the University’s Extended Health benefits plan with valid emergency out-of-country coverage, please contact your supervisor.
