Canada-U.S. Border Closed to Non-Essential Travel

For the first time since Canadian Confederation in 1867, Canada and the U.S. are closing the joint border to most travelers as they fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The Department of Homeland Security announced the border closure today.

This decision will be implemented on March 21, 2020, at which time the US and Canada will temporarily restrict all non-essential travel across the US-Canada land border. The measure will be in place for 30 days, at which point it will be reviewed by both parties.
