History

Atlantic Bubble was first conceived to encourage economic strength and fluidity amongst Atlantic Provinces due to economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic in Canada. Initially, Atlantic Provinces had interprovincial travel restrictions, to prevent spread of COVID-19. On June 24 2020, it was announced that four premiers of Atlantic Canadian had come to agreement on creating free-travel Bubble, effective July 3 2020 amongst provinces. On November 23, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island announced plans to suspend involvement in Bubble for minimum of two weeks effective November 24. Travellers from other Atlantic Provinces would be required self-isolate upon entry, thus restricting Bubble to just New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. On November 26, New Brunswick announced plans to reinstate 14-day self-isolation requirement for out-of-province travellers, thus ending any free-travel amongst member provinces.
