Federal government officials are expected to make a long-awaited update announcement this morning regarding the reopening of Canada’s border.
The government shut its border to foreign travelers and implemented strict measures for non-essential workers in March 2020, but Ottawa has hinted that now that COVID-19 cases are dropping and vaccination rates are rising, it is open to easing those rules.
The issue was raised during Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s call with premiers late last week.
“The prime minister noted that, if our current positive path of vaccination rate and public health conditions continue, Canada would be in a position to welcome fully vaccinated travelers from all countries by early September,” notes a readout from that call.
Cabinet ministers are expected to make an announcement at 1:30 p.m. ET.
