Federal government officials have revealed that updates related to the Canada-U.S. border reopening and restarting travel will be shared within "days."

Speaking during a press conference on Wednesday, Canadian Transport Minister Omar Alghabra confirmed that talks are ongoing between the feds and Canada's airlines and airports to ensure the sector is prepared for any changes.

"In the coming days, we're going to be announcing details about the phasing of reopening or adjusting travel measures," Alghabra told reporters on June 16, per Global News.

Revealing that the government has been "in contact" with the aviation sector, he added, "We need to give them time to prepare for reopening, and we feel confident that our partnership with them and their dedicated and committed workers and teams will be ready to work with us on the phasing of reopening travel."

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has previously revealed that any easing of restrictions at Canada's borders would be focused on fully-vaccinated travellers, although details of what this could look like are yet to be revealed.

Canada's international borders remain closed to all non-essential international travel until at least June 21, 2021.
