Thanks everyone. Im asking for my sister whos not Canadian, and is has an overnight connection in YYZ on the way from Israel to the US. Will she be able to leave the airport?
Will quite possibly be denied boarding at TLV, but YYZ border will probably allow her in for the night.

Does this new announcement mean that it is now closed indefinitely?

It gets consistently pushed off in monthly intervals.

Do they have any sort of reopening strategy or is the plan to keep postponing it for the next four hundred years?

I've heard rumors that the plan is to reopen it when you finish all your outstanding TR's and are in need of a new destination ... so about 400 years sounds right. :)

The good news is, they still allow one to leave. For now..

New enforcement system being added to Canada's quarantine. Seems like starting in a few weeks you either have to download their app or call an automated line to check in daily. If you don't check in then you're a high priority for law enforcement to come check on you.

Not sure if you have to do anything on the app each day, but if you do then shabbos is going to be an issue. Though if you're keeping the quarantine you shouldn't have an issue with law enforcement showing up....

Travellers who dont use ArriveCAN to submit their information before entering Canada will be required to call the 1-833-641-0343 toll-free number on a daily basis throughout their quarantine or isolation period to provide their post-border information. They will not be able to revert to using ArriveCAN.

Right. Would potentially be a problem in a 2/3 day YomTov, hopefully COVID will be looooong gone when were at that point.

People also likely wouldn't arrive on Shabbos :)

I wasn't referring to the initial check-in, I was referring to this:
