Inquiry: Almost 5000 children FINED by Canadian authorities for breaching COVID quarantine rules
12/13/2022 // Ramon Tomey // Views

Figures recently released as part of an inquiry found that health authorities in Canada fined almost 5,000 children for breaking quarantine rules set to curb the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Inquiry of Ministry was brought before the House of Commons by lawmaker Marilyn Gladu, who directed the inquiry at the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).

Gladu, a member of parliament (MP) under the Conservative Party, asked: "With regard to minors being warned of imprisonment or fines if they broke the previous quarantine requirements for certain individuals returning to Canada, since April 2020 broken down by year: How many travelers under age 18 received such warnings?"

In response, PHAC said it issued fines on 4,883 children for breaking COVID-19 quarantine rules under the Quarantine Act. The nearly 5,000 children were among the 58,760 minors who had been issued stay-at-home orders under the act invoked by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

While the information provided by the agency did not state how old the children were, PHAC said inspectors mostly made the warnings. Such warning issued to children below 18 years old were given in person by law enforcement officials "as a result of noncompliance identified either at the port of entry or during a police check at the traveler's quarantine address."

The "written or verbal" warnings "are issued to the parent or guardian" and "contain information regarding possible enforcement actions."


PHAC handed out a total of CA$14.9 million ($10.94 million) in quarantine fines. They ranged from a CA$100 ($73.42) fine for a child breaching a quarantine order up to a CA$275 ($201.91) fine for those who gave false or misleading information.

"Failure to comply with a reasonable measure" merited a CA$500 ($367.10) fine, while those who breached a quarantine order were fined CA$750 ($550.65). Individuals who entered the country illegally were slapped with a CA$1,000 ($734.20) penalty.

Trudeau used Quarantine Act to infringe on Canadians' freedoms

The individuals fined lived only in three provinces – British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario. Alberta, Saskatchewan, Quebec and provinces in Atlantic Canada refused to enforce the Quarantine Act, which meant that no fines were given in these areas.

PHAC spent more than CA$43 million ($31.57 million) hiring security guards who enforced COVID-19 quarantine rules by making house calls on returning travelers, according to LifeSiteNews. However, the security guards contracted by the agency became the subject of an inquiry by MP Rosemary Falk – also from the Conservative Party.

She asked: "What recourse is the [PHAC] making available to individuals who are harassed or mistreated by a private security officer or firm acting on behalf of the agency?"

In response, the PHAC said all complaints regarding "treatment or conduct during a compliance verification visit that have been received are reviewed." It also acknowledged that there were 38 complaints made against such visits, with some noting "aggressive or unprofessional behavior" on the part of authorities.

The Quarantine Act was suspended on Oct. 1, putting an end to COVID-19 restrictions in place since the middle of 2020. A restriction scrapped as a result of this move was a vaccine mandate for foreigners entering Canada. The much-hated ArriveCAN travel app has become optional instead of mandatory.

While the suspension of the act means that there are currently no COVID-19 restrictions for entering or leaving the country, it cannot be denied that Ottawa used it to enact severely draconian travel rules on all returning travelers. In particular, Trudeau's use of the act gave the federal government the power to place upon Canadians "unprecedented travel and isolation" requirements.
