I am a UK citizen planning on transiting through Canada on September 27th on my journey from Mexico City to London Heathrow.

I have 2 hours planned in Toronto, and so do not plan to leave the airport for any reason.

What entry requirements do I need to meet for my trip? Do I need a quarantine plan? I have obtained an ETA already.

I have looked on the website, but the case for transiting visitors is unclear.

Edit to Include website information: website information

This would seem to imply that the quarantine plan is mandatory for all travelers, including those that are exempt from travel restrictions

No quarantine for transit passengers. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/coronavirus-covid19/travel-restrictions-exemptions.html:

transiting passengers (must remain in the secure transit area of a Canadian airport to complete their connection)

  • Thanks, that was how I read it first, though on a second look it reads that the quarantine plan is mandatory for all

  • @PatoPan My guess is that "when you arrive in Canada" means that it's only for people who enter Canada, i.e. leave the transit area and pass the immigration checkpoint. Sep 11, 2020 at 16:38
