Be VERY careful about buying a plane ticket to Canada now.
I thought I would only have to do a 3 day hotel quarantine but after reading the Health Canada web site in more detail it turns out that I must do a a 14 day hotel quarantine (no leaving the room, they bring your food etc to your room).
I phoned several hotels and the lowest price I found is $268 Canadian plus tax.
For a 14 day quarantine that is over $4 000 Canadian dollars.
Ability to pay is not taken into account.
If you have proof that you arrived before the pandemic began that is also not taken into account.
In a nutshell: Not allowed into your own country if you don’t have $4 000 Canadian.
From what I can tell, the 14 days is required because my parents are over 65 (I cannot quarantine with people over 65) and because (from what I can tell) it looks like I would need to stay in a home that has only a very small number of people living there. Oddly, the web site does not provide an exact number (of people who can live there) but it looks like none of the places that I would be able to stay at would qualify.
The good news is that there will “soon” be an update on this.
Hope this may help some.
