Canada looking to ease travel for families

Canada's prime minister has said the country is exploring easing restrictions currently preventing some close family members from entering Canada through the U.S. border.

The prime minister noted that easing travel restrictions is cause for concern among Canada’s provinces, who he has been consulting with on this matter.
According to the Prime Minister, some premiers expressed openness to easing travel rules for families on grounds of compassion, while other premiers felt that doing so could make efforts to contain COVID-19 more challenging.
Trudeau concluded by saying that the federal and provincial governments will continue to explore this topic while keeping the safety and security of Canadians at the forefront of the ultimate decision that is taken.
