Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Update: On March 18, 2020, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that Canada and the United States had agreed to temporarily close the Canada-US border to non-essential travel, in order to preserve “critical” supply chains between the two countries. President Trump also announced this temporary closure in a tweet on March 18, 2020. Prime Minister Trudeau confirmed that travel for the purposes of recreation and tourism will be prohibited. Both Prime Minister Trudeau and President Trump have also stated that trade will not be affected. However, very little details have been provided regarding what will be considered essential travel. It is also not known at this time whether this measure will apply only to the land ports of entry or if it will modify the existing air travel ban that is already in effect.
