Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada could start allowing fully vaccinated Americans into Canada as of mid-August for non-essential travel and should be in a position to welcome fully vaccinated travellers from all countries by early September.

 

Trudeau spoke with leaders of Canada's provinces and his office released a readout of the call. He noted that if Canada's current positive path of vaccination rate and public health conditions continue the border can open.

 

Canada would be in a position to welcome fully vaccinated travellers from all countries by early September the readout said. "He noted the ongoing discussions with the United States on reopening plans, and indicated that we could expect to start allowing fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents into Canada as of mid-August for non-essential travel".

 

Trudeau noted Canada continues to lead G20 countries in vaccination rates with approximately 80% of eligible Canadians vaccinated with their first dose and over 50% of eligible Canadians fully vaccinated. He said case numbers and severe illness continue to decline across the country as vaccination rates continue to increase.

 

Non-essential entry into Canada by Americans and others has been restricted since the early months of the pandemic.
