In a call Thursday with Canada’s provincial and territorial prime ministers, Trudeau also said Canada could open up to fully vaccinated travelers to all countries in early September if the current vaccination trend continues.
Canada is out of the bounds of American travelers. Tourism, leisure and informal visits are prohibited. There are some exceptions for family members, foreign workers, and international students.
The prime ministers agreed to work “on a vaccination credential test” to ensure Canadians could “travel internationally with confidence,” the reading said.
Trudeau said Canada leads the G20 countries in vaccination rates, with approximately 80% of eligible Canadians vaccinated with their first dose and more than 50% fully vaccinated.
Trudeau said there were ongoing discussions with the U.S. about reopening the plans.
