US and Canadian business leaders have voiced increasing concern about the ban on non-essential travel in light of COVID-19 that was first imposed in March 2020 and renewed on a monthly basis since then. The border measures do not affect trade flows.Advertisement

Trudeau, speaking after a Group of Seven summit in Britain, said he had talked to Biden"about coordinating measures at our borders as both our countries move ahead with mass vaccination." Canada is resisting calls for the border measures to be relaxed, citing the need for more people to be vaccinated.

"Many countries, like Canada, continue to say that now is not the time to travel," Trudeau added, though he said it is important to get back to normalcy as quickly as possible. Read more: CNA »
