Thank you for the question.
Mr. Chair, the ArriveCAN app is actually the vehicle for the provision of the medical information and public health information mandated through the order in council as issued by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Without the use of ArriveCAN, for which we receive the information 99.5% of the time in advance in air and in marine, and just over 90% in land, that information would need to be collected either by paper submission or orally for capture and input by a CBSA officer.
Without ArriveCAN, it would take a far greater time to process individuals than it currently takes. You can recall a period of time back in March and April 2020 when this was being captured on paper and we had significant delays at Canadian airports and land borders. It's been a very efficient tool to allow for the capture of that public health information.
