Canada US Border Closure Has Been Extended For Another Month Justin Trudeau Confirms

The Canada-US border closure will be staying in place for a little while longer because there's been an extension for another month. 

Justin Trudeau confirmed the closure on Twitter on November 20, the day before the last agreement was set to expire.

"Non-essential travel between our two countries remains restricted," he wrote.

December 21 latest Canada-U.S. border closure extension date

Now, border restrictions will stay in effect for another 30 days.

That means non-essential travel is banned until at least December 21.

When announcing the previous extension in October, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Bill Blair said that the decision on whether to open the border or keep it closed would be based on public health advice.

That's to "keep Canadians safe."

This closure has been in place since March 21 and the latest extension means we'll be going into our eighth month with only essential travel across land borders with the U.S.
