Magdalen Islands entry and departure through PEI

All travellers who wish to travel to or from the Magdalen Islands by way of Prince Edward Island must present a completed Quebec Self Declaration Form and a copy of the ferry reservation at the point of entry.

  • Please note on your way to the Magdelan Islands, you will not be permitted entry to PEI more than 24 hours before the departure time of your ferry to the Magdelan Islands. For your awareness, if as a result of any delays in your Magdelan Island ferry departure time you need to stay overnight in PEI, you will be required to show an appropriate self isolation plan (e.g. a hotel or motel reservation) in order to enter PEI.

While in Prince Edward Island, it is also important to follow Public Health Orders and guidance.

  • Follow all PEI public health measures including frequent hand washing and practicing physical distancing (stay 6 feet apart). Go directly to the ferry terminal/Confederation Bridge via Route 1 and Route 2 with limited stops for fuelling your vehicle, visiting a restroom and/or drive-through meal purchases.  You are not permitted to travel off Routes 1 and 2 with the exception of short distances to access fuel, restrooms or drive thru meals.  Do not visit friends or family during your travels through Prince Edward Island.

  • Do not go to restaurants, stores, banks or public places.

  • Gas stops are permitted.  Use enhanced hygiene, practice physical distancing and pay at the pump where at all possible;  wear a non-medical mask if you need to enter the gas station to pay.

  • Restroom stops are permitted. To minimize the number of stops, restrooms should be accessed at the same time you stop for gas. Practice physical distancing and wear a non-medical mask.

  • Drive-through food service is allowed. Entering grocery stores, fast food premises or other restaurants is not permitted.

  • You may use ferry-side delivery service to replenish supplies such as groceries or other goods.

  • Monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
