What sort of information are you after? A few people have replied to your other queries - was any of that advice of use?
How are you finding it being back in the UK? Things must have changed a lot I guess - we’ve been in Canada for 10 years and I’m sure lots has changed in that time.

You say 'returning to UK' , but according to your earlier posts you have already done so?

You are left Canada and are now living in the UK?

Are you not a citizen of Canada? If you are, you could have returned at any time, it's only visitors to Canada that aren't permitted.

If you can give people more info about the kind of help you're after, then they'll be happy to assist I'm sure.

HTH.

You don't have to return to Calgary immediately, you could fly somewhere else and rest there for a few days before carrying on with the journey maybe? But if you're a citizen then there's no rush to get back, so don't worry about it and just stay in the UK for now (you'd only have to worry if you were a PR and at risk of losing your PR status). Hopefully you can then travel when things ease a bit, maybe in the summer.

And if you still want advice from those who've moved back to the UK then feel free to ask and they'll try and help.

Good luck.

1, Should note only Montreal, Toronto, Calgary & Vancouver are receiving international flights. If the OP returns s/he has to do the mandatory 3 days hotel quarantine at one of the open airports and then could return to his/her home to complete the additional 11 day quarantine.
