When are Canadian borders reopening? City officials say restrictions could ease this month

After 15 months of strict travel restrictions along its southern border, the Canadian government could be loosening its border restrictions in just two weeks, according to city officials. 

A virtual meeting between Canadian border city mayors and Public Safety Minister Bill Blair on May 28 included discussions on easing COVID-19 cross-border policies once the current restrictions expire on June 21, Niagara Falls, Ontario Mayor Jim Diodati told USA TODAY.

“Hope is not a good strategy – we need a plan,” Diodati said.
