Results took just under 48 hours to come back. Really confusing as some of his friends went out just after him and had no test and didn't have to isolate. Information is very sparse and confusing at moment but best be prepared to isolate. Hope this helps a bit.
Glad to hear your son managed to his result in 48 hours and thank you for the info, most helpful!
Hopefully, we'll be able to self isolate in Whistler (Condo stay) but yeah, totally agree its pretty random if you get tested.
On the Canadian Gov Covid site they state that in the near future they wan't to test 100%
of incoming travelers? That's fine if they can self isolate at their place of stay but your son's experience highlights not everyone can do that.
