*It is mandatory to wear a mask while at Toronto Pearson, but a number of exceptions to this rule are in effect. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, you are exempt from the rule provided you have a note from a medical doctor that certifies that you are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons. As such, if asked by GTAA Public Safety Officer, Peel Regional Police or a CATSA screening officer, we suggest letting them know that you have a medical condition. Please note, however, that Transport Canada has specific requirements for the use of masks in order to pass through security screening and to board a plane.
