Traveller screening at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport
In 2021, following a rapid screening project with Aéroports de Montréal (ADM), we were selected by the Public Health Agency of Canada to test international travellers arriving in Montreal.
From January to August 2021, we conducted 238,000 mandatory and random COVID-19 screening tests on international travellers and passengers on private and targeted flights. We also performed tests at designated quarantine facilities and government-approved accommodations.
To fulfill these responsibilities, we conducted a massive recruitment campaign and provided training that enabled our teams to integrate into the existing ecosystem and quickly master the operational and regulatory systems of various authorities, including border services.

Launch of COVID-19 testing
In 2021, to meet the needs of international travellers, we launched two COVID-19 screening tests at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport.
- An antigenic test, which detects the presence of proteins (or antigens) associated with SARS-CoV-2, produces results in just 15 minutes thanks to a new testing device installed in our mini-lab at the airport.
- A rapid RT-PCR test, which detects the RNA of the virus, provides results in one hour. This test, equivalent to a PCR test performed in a laboratory, meets the highest performance requirements.
