Site offers information for Canadians planning to travel or live abroad

OTTAWA—The federal government has unveiled a revamped Travel.gc.ca, Canada’s official “one-stop shop” for international travel information. The government said that travel.gc.ca is a single website for information to travel or live abroad safely and to make informed decisions. Along with the website, a new mobile application, Travel Smart, is available and allows Canadians anywhere in the world to access Government of Canada information and services on international travel.

Canadians will also be able to access travel information from anywhere in the world through Twitter, Facebook, RSS feeds and email updates. Travel.gc.ca is supported by a social media presence distributing travel advice, crisis updates and emergency contact information.

Travel.gc.ca is managed by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada in collaboration with the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority; the Canada Border Services Agency; the Canadian Food Inspection Agency; the Canada Revenue Agency; Citizenship and Immigration Canada; Environment Canada; Health Canada; Passport Canada; the Public Health Agency of Canada; Public Safety Canada and Transport Canada.
