Canada-U.S. border restrictions extended for another 30 days: PM

Canada-U.S. border restrictions extended for another 30 days: PM

The Canada-United States border will be closed to non-essential traffic for 30 days longer than originally planned.

Trudeau says it will keep people on both sides of the border safe amid the pandemic.

"The agreement is the same terms".

"These investments announced today will help millions of businesses to hold on until the situation improves, including many businesses run by Indigenous women", Trudeau said.

But officials in Canada have said it would still be a matter of weeks.

On Saturday morning, Trudeau said the current border measures, which were due to expire on April 21, will be extended for another 30 days.

President Trump said Wednesday the U.S.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is calling for three in-person sittings a week with a smaller number of MPs and two hours per day for question period.

Many of Canada's confirmed coronavirus cases have come from people who had returned from travel in the USA, according to the Associated Press.

Essential cross-border workers such as truck drivers, healthcare professionals and airline crews are still allowed to cross the border, the Associated Press reported. Truck drivers are critical as they supply grocery stores and medical goods in both directions.

USA goods and services trade with Canada totalled an estimated 718.5 billion dollars in 2018, according to US trade authorities.

The majority of Canadians live in areas close to the 8,891-kilometre USA border and communities on both sides of the frontier maintain close links.

Canada sends 75% of its exports to the USA and about 18% of American exports go to Canada.

The closure of the US border took a little longer because it was a coordinated effort between the two countries. The country has conducted more than 507,000 tests.
