Travelling during curfew
As of Saturday, January 9, a curfew will be in effect in Quebec. As specified by the government authorities, anyone will be prohibited from being outside their place of residence or its grounds between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Exceptions are permitted, particularly for a person whose presence is essential on the premises of his work.
Farmers or farm workers who are required to move around during the curfew may have in their possession a certificate drawn up and signed by the owner of the farming business, to proove their need to travel. Click on the button to access the certificate to be completed, in French or in English.
