Once again the Canadian government has extended the current travel restrictions imposed to control the spread of the Covid-19 virus. The Canadian government had restricted international travel from all countries including the United States, a year ago for the first time.
On May 18, 2021, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the government may open the southern border with the US once three-quarters of the Canadian population has been vaccinated. So, it is clear that until 75% of all the people in Canada have been vaccinated, there is no end to the current travel restrictions.
Both Canada and the US are discussing the best times to reopen their borders. It will most likely depend on the number of Covid-19 cases in each country and the percentage of people who are fully vaccinated. Both countries are even considering implementing a system that will allow people to travel between the US and Canada without having to provide a negative Covid-19 test result or quarantine for 14 days.
