Default Flying between provinces - BC - ON - Covid requirements

Simple enough question but I cant seem to find a definitive answer anywhere in the plethora of airline company, governmental or provincial websites;
I need to travel (fly) from BC, to ON for work, and back again for a team meeting with other colleagues from BC, AB, ON and NS.
I do not have a vaccination.
I use Westjet but their website doesnt help much either its all about international travel.
Other than wear a mask I presume, what else do I need to do? Covid test, quarantine, etc? Or is inter-provincial travel now allowed? Where can I find out the requirements?
Thanks

Then stay in your basement, It's neither safe nor sensible for you to go out in public. Your employer should not require you to endanger yourself and the unvaccinated public at large, perhaps they can buy you a telephone.

There are no entry restriction into Ontario according to: https://www.ontario.ca/page/travelling-during-covid-19

But, do get vaccinated. Please.

The vaccine is not universally available for everyone depending on medical conditions so we shouldnt assume somebody unvaccinated is so by choice. In this day and age of acceptance and being 'politically correct' you would think people would learn to be less judgemental. Just saying. Thanks AX for the information.

This may be of use - the Provincial links show the information for intra Provincial travel. https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/tr...ions/provinces

Your colleague from NS may want to read this one.. https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/travel/

These provinces and territories have no further restrictions:
For Westjet - see the bottom of the page - face mask policy / boarding requirements (and other policies) dropdowns - there are sections for Intra Provincial travel.. : https://www.westjet.com/en-ca/travel-info/advisories

Guests travelling within/from Canada

Transport Canada requires that all guests, 6 years of age or older, have a non-medical mask or face covering to cover their nose, mouth and chin during travel.

I'm not making that assumption. If someone has a disability that prevents them from being vaccinated and so from traveling then I think that's unfortunate for them.

However, Transport Canada regulations, which cover travel by air and by rail within Canada, require that persons not able to wear a mask MUST have a letter from a physician explaining why.

I am travelling within Canada by:

Air

Non-medical masks or face coverings

You must have a non-medical mask or face covering that covers your mouth and nose during your travel through Canadian airports and during your flight. Air operators must notify each passenger, and receive confirmation, that they have a face covering as early as possible during their journey. This prevents situations where passengers arrive at the airport without a non-medical mask or face covering and can be done at the online booking or online check-in, or physically at registration or, less ideally, at the check-in counter.

If you don’t have a non-medical mask or face covering, you won’t be allowed to enter the restricted areas of the airport and continue with your journey.

The OP said they aren't vaccinated, not that they couldn't wear a mask
