The Safe Travels Stamp was created for travellers to recognize destinations and businesses around the world which have implemented globally standardized health and hygiene protocols to ensure visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Our following partners and supporters have been awarded the Safe Travels Stamp:

  • Tourism Richmond
  • All operating event hotels
  • Richmond Ice Centre
  • Richmond Olympic Oval (in progress)

The Vancouver International Airport has implemented YVR TAKEcare. This health and safety program places industry-leading health, safety and cleaning protocols at the forefront of airport processes so travelers can move about the facilities with confidence.

The CARHA Hockey World Cup is actively working with its partners to obtain the Safe Travels Stamp or ensure they are following proper health and safety protocols.

We will continue to monitor local/provincial health authority guidelines and adhere to their most up-to-date guidance. Our approach is based on current restrictions and as these evolve, we will communicate more information to our teams. To protect ourselves and those around us, it is essential that all participants observe the tournament-outlined safety protocols that will be required at the time of the event.
