Feds Say Decisions About Canada's Borders Will Be 'Made By Canadians, For ...

Ahead of an expected update to travel restrictions, Canada's minister of public safety has made it clear that any changes related to the Canada-U.S. border reopening will focus on Canadians' wellbeing.

In a tweet on Sunday evening, Bill Blair confirmed that he'd had a "good and important conversation" with his American counterpart on Friday, pertaining to the "strong measures at our shared border."

Blair went on to add that, "Decisions at our border will always be made by Canadians, for Canadians as we closely monitor health metrics and assess how best to keep Canadians safe."

This message comes ahead of a border and travel-related announcement expected on July 19.

Government of Canada officials are set to "announce updates to the border measures implemented to protect the health of Canadians due COVID-19" at a news conference on Monday afternoon.

Last week, Justin Trudeau revealed that eligible fully vaccinated Americans could perhaps visit Canada again by mid-August, while other international travellers may be welcomed back by the fall.
