Canada Will Announce New Travel Restrictions For Fully-Vaccinated Travellers Only

The federal government is set to announce changes to Canada's travel rules on Monday, although the updated restrictions will impact fully-vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents only.

Despite calls to restart international travel ASAP, the feds announced last week that Canada's borders will remain closed to non-essential foreign travellers until at least July 21, 2021.

However, officials have confirmed that there will be some easing of restrictions, focused on Canadians and permanent residents who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Announcing the border closure extension on June 18, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair confirmed that more details will be shared on Monday, June 21.

He told Rosemary Barton Live on Sunday that the changes will be limited to just a few measures and revealed that non-essential travel outside of Canada will continue to be discouraged.

Updates will be related to Canada's mandatory quarantine hotels and the two-week quarantine period, among other things, Blair said, per CBC News.
