The Canada-U.S. land border closure has been extended yet again. As expected, the federal government has announced that the restriction on non-essential travel across the Canada-U.S. land border will now expire on Nov. 21. The current agreement was set to expire on Wednesday. The extension comes amid continued concern over the COVID-19 situation south of the border. The restriction on all but essential travel was first put in place in March as the number of COVID-19 cases in Canada and the U.S. began to rise. The travel ban prohibits anyone from crossing the land border for leisure or recreation. Earlier this month, the federal government eased restrictions to allow extended family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents into the country. In addition to that change, international students will be allowed into Canada starting Tuesday, Oct. 20.
