According to various sources, the government of Canada will announce that the Canada-U.S. border will remain closed for another 30 days, until Dec. 21, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The border between Canada and the United States was closed to non-essential travel on March 21 and has remained closed, with the order extended now until November 21. Extended family members of Canadian citizens and Canadian permanent residents, including those in an exclusive dating relationship of at least one year and their dependent children, as well as adult children, grandchildren, siblings, and grandparents, are allowed to enter Canada.

Non-relative foreign nationals are also allowed to enter under compassionate reasons in specific circumstances, such as a close friend experiencing a life-threatening illness, critical injury, or death.

International students studying at Canadian colleges and universities are also now allowed to enter the country to continue their education.

Anyone who re-enters Canada must quarantine for 14 days.
