PM Justin Trudeau Announces Canada-US Border Closure Extends to August 21

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed that Canadian and U.S. officials have agreed to keep the border between the two countries closed to non-essential travel until August 21.

The ban on discretionary travel was first introduced in March and has been extended each month since. The latest extension was set to expire on July 21.

"Once again, Canada and the United States have agreed to extend the current border measures by one month until August 21, and we're going to keep working closely with our American neighbours to keep people safe on both sides of the border,” Trudeau said on Thursday.

While the restrictions have now been in place for months, it hasn’t stopped some Americans from trying to cross into Canada, and there have been some instances of U.S. travelers entering into Canada improperly.
