That would extend the closure until August 21 and restrict non-essential travel from happening.

The agreement was set to expire on July 21.

Reuters also reported that two sources from Ottawa confirmed that the closure is expected to continue.

On July 13, Justin Trudeau said that more information about the border would be coming later in the week.

He also noted that there will be discussions about whether to continue with the month-by-month closure or just extend it to the end of the year.

The Canada-U.S. border has been closed to non-essential travel since March.
