Canada’s COVID-19 border restrictions are expected to expire on Sept. 30 with no plans to renew them.
While there hasn’t been anything officially announced, Global News learned from multiple government sources that the Liberal government was drafting plans to ease border restrictions and make the ArriveCAN app optional for travellers. Some people in the travel industry are thrilled.
James Bogusz, president and CEO of the Regina airport, said they’ve been asking for these restrictions to get dropped for a while.
“Virtually anybody involved with the what I call the travel economy has been asking the federal government for many months to repeal the final travel restrictions,” Bogusz said.
