OTTAWA — Canada could open its border to fully vaccinated Americans for nonessential travel as early as mid-August.
The news comes after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s call with premiers on Thursday night. According to a readout of the conversation, Trudeau’s provincial and territorial counterparts “expressed their support of reopening plans, and agreed on the importance of ensuring clarity and predictability as initial steps are taken.”
If restrictions are eased, U.S. citizens and permanent residents would be allowed into Canada. The readout noted current vaccination rates and Covid-19 trends are on a “positive path” and if they continue, “Canada would be in a position to welcome fully vaccinated travellers from all countries by early September.”
Nearly 80 percent of eligible Canadians have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine; and at least 53 percent are fully vaccinated, according to Deputy Chief Health Officer Howard Njoo.
