According to a Twitter post Tuesday morning (May 31) by Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), the federal COVID-19 restrictions at the border are being extended until at least June 30.
This announcement comes a day after a Conservative Party motion calling on the government to lift all COVID-19 restrictions was defeated in the House.
The federal government will continue to require foreign tourists to provide proof of being fully vaccinated.
Unvaccinated Canadian citizens or permanent residents must also show proof of a COVID-19 molecular test before entering Canada and be quarantined for 14 days.
In addition, all travellers to Canada must submit their health information via the ArriveCAN app prior to entry, regardless of citizenship.
Ottawa’s vaccine mandate for plane and train travel remains.
