Canada will not reopen to tourists “for a while”

The border between Canada and the United States is currently closed for non-essential travel, at least until July 21. But from July 5, some who have completed the vaccination cycle can avoid 14 days of isolation or spend the first three days in the country in a government-approved hotel.

“We will then evaluate what measures can be taken to allow fully vaccinated international travelers”, but for now it is still too late to talk about it.
