Canada extends travel restrictions at US border for another month
Non-essential travel restrictions will remain in place at the Canada-U.S. border for at least another month.
Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Bill Blair said on Thursday that the restrictions have been extended until at least April 21.
“Non-essential travel restrictions with the United States have been extended until April 21st, 2021. We will continue to base our decisions on the best public health advice available to keep Canadians safe from COVID-19,” Blair said in a tweet.
Update on our border: Non-essential travel restrictions between Canada and the US have been extended by another 30 days – until April 21st. We’ll continue to do whatever is necessary to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Canada has shown little interest in lifting the restrictions and last month imposed new COVID-19 testing requirements for some Canadians returning at land crossings.
