Trudeau Says It Will Be 'Quite A While' Before Unvaccinated Tourists Can Travel To Canada

"We will continue to do everything we can to reopen safely and rapidly," the PM said.

When it comes to travel rules in Canada and who can come into the country, Justin Trudeau just revealed that it will be "quite a while" before unvaccinated tourists will be allowed to travel here.

While speaking in B.C. on July 8, the prime minister said his government will continue to reopen "safely and rapidly" but unvaccinated tourists won't be allowed into Canada any time soon so that the progress the country has made won't be jeopardized.

"We will move responsibly forward, we will continue the reopening of our borders, but we will do it in a way that ensures the ongoing safety of all Canadians," the prime minister said.

Trudeau did share, however, that his government is "eager" to take reopening to the next step and let in people from around the world who are fully vaccinated. "We're going to make sure that we're moving forward with that in the coming weeks," he said.

Regarding the Canada-U.S. border, Trudeau had mentioned at the beginning of July that letting in fully vaccinated Americans would depend on vaccination rates and the results of the first step of new travel rules, which allow fully vaccinated travellers who are eligible to enter the country to skip quarantine.

A top doctor in Ontario recently said that reopening the border between the two countries too soon would be putting Canadians at risk.
