So we've been getting some questions over the seeming contradiction in Canada saying everyone should and can come home, while also saying you will be denied the right to board a plane if you have symptoms. I will try to clear that up in a few tweets 1/x
Any Canadian who gets to the border will be admitted. This is your right as a citizen. You will be allowed in even if you're sick.
But an airplane is not a border crossing. You have no right to board a plane if you are sick.
So if you are sick and can walk, ride, bike, bus, drive, train etc to the border, you will be allowed in. You will be assessed either in person or by phone by public health. Then given instructions to either self-isolate or be handled by a quarantine officer 3/x
But, again, a plane is not a border. Canada has instructed airlines not to let people board if they have symptoms. Sick people will be stranded. Lack of airline capacity will also leave people stranded.

The government has set up programs and consular services to help people caught in this. The Foreign Affairs minister has tweeted out all the contact information. Here is a link to his thread with the contact info you will need:
