Canada and the United States are negotiating a possible extension of the joint border closure for non-essential travel beyond June 21, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today.
The two countries, by mutual agreement, decided to close their common border on March 21, except for the transport of goods and products, for a period of one month.
This closure was renewed with the same duration in April and May.
"We are negotiating with the Americans for a possible extension of this closure," Trudeau told a daily news conference in Ottawa.
Last week, Canada eased the border closure measure by allowing foreign nationals to reunite with their families living in Canada, subject to a quarantine period of at least 15 days.
