The PM confirmed the news.
There are now active COVID-19 cases in Canada in every single province. That's because new ones have been reported in Atlantic Canada.

"We now have active cases in every single province with a significant increase in our four largest provinces," Justin Trudeau said during a press conference.
New positive tests coming from Atlantic Canada have brought the country to this point.
However, the situation is starkly different when you compare just how many active cases there are in each location.
As Trudeau said, the highest numbers are in the biggest provinces.
There are 3,917 in Quebec, 3,774 in Ontario, 1,462 in Alberta and 1,397 in B.C.
The numbers drop off drastically for the rest of the provinces.
Manitoba has 449 active cases, Saskatchewan has 130, New Brunswick has six and Newfoundland & Labrador, P.E.I. and Nova Scotia each have one.
As of September 24, there is a total of 11,138 people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and haven't recovered yet.
Due to this spike in cases, Canada isand we could see 5,000 daily cases in October if we stay on this path.
