Recently, Justin Trudeau revealed that this year's summer can be normal if restrictions stay in place until cases go down and at least 75% of people get at least one dose. Canada is expected to have received enough doses for that to happen by then and enough by September "for every Canadian to be fully vaccinated."

It looks like Toronto isn't ready to restore its pre-pandemic summer plans. On Friday, the City of Toronto announced that they're extending the cancellation of all city-run, in-person events up until the end of Labour Day weekend on September 6.
This includes events like the Caribbean Carnival and the CNE, which announced in February that it hoped to reopen for Torontonians this summer.
Mayor John Tory tweeted that he's working with the CNE to help them come up with a "bigger and better in-person event in 2022."
The City said that the aim of this announcement is to make it easier for organizers to predict what will happen with their events this summer. Their statement includes a list of all 24 major events that are cancelled, many of which will take place virtually for the second year in a row.
