Canada and the United States are finalizing the details to close the northern border to all non-essential travel. The intention is to find an agreement that will restrict the flow of people across the border without disrupting the movement of goods.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated this morning, "Travellers will no longer be permitted to cross the border for recreation and tourism", while U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted, "We will be, by mutual consent, temporarily closing our Northern Border with Canada to non-essential traffic. Trade will not be affected."
We will provide updates as details are available.
