For many months, Toronto Pearson has joined Canadian airports in calling on the Federal Government to create a clear, consistent approach to mandatory testing for arriving international passengers. Today we are pleased to see a path forward that will ensure the health and safety of travellers, our employees and the communities we serve. While there are details to work out at both the Federal and Provincial levels of government with respect to these mandatory testing requirements, we believe testing is a necessary next step in our Healthy Airport commitment and will create a further layer of safety to protect not only passengers, but all Canadians.
