Canadians who have been waiting to travel to Atlantic Canada now have a date for when they're booking their trips.

In a press conference on Thursday, June 9, Nova Scotia premier Iain Rankin revealed that Canadians should feel "comfortable" to book a trip to the Maritimes by July 14 at the earliest.

As for people already in Atlantic Canada, Rankin said that they could likely start travelling between provinces by June 30. As it stands, travellers are only allowed to enter province for essential reasons and must isolate for 14 days.

Rankin also revealed that his government is in ongoing discussions regarding looser restrictions for people who have been fully vaccinated.

"I would ask for patience and allow us to continue to work closely with public health so that we can get to phase two and then we can have a conversation about allowing travellers to come into our province," Rankin said at a press conference on June 11. Currently Nova Scotia is scheduled to enter phase two by June 16.
