October 8 applications to enter Canada opened

Information on who qualifies as an extended family member, the process and the requirements needed to enter Canada can be found online.

The Canada-U.S. border is closed to non-essential travel until October 21 and the international travel ban that doesn't allow non-citizens and non-permanent residents from coming here was extended to October 31.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13.
