Canada to close borders to certain travellers not trade

On Monday afternoon, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau advised Canada will be closing its borders to most foreign travellers to enhance screening and limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Exceptions will be made for air crews, diplomats, immediate family members and at this time, U.S. citizens.

Only four Canadian airports will receive international flights as of Wednesday March 18, 2020 – Vancouver International Airport, Pearson International Airport (Toronto), Calgary International Airport and Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (Montreal).

Trudeau said the new border control restrictions will not apply to trade and commerce in order to keep Canada’s supply chains open.

For more information, please call Brian Rowe, Director – Customs Compliance & Regulatory Affairs at (905) 882-4880, ext. 1213.
