Border Restrictions Extended

The temporary restrictions on non-essential travel across the shared ports of entry between Canada, the U.S., and Mexico will remain in place for an additional 30 days, extending to November 21.

The Chamber has called for the restrictions to be lifted as businesses across our region, and in particular, small businesses, have shouldered the bulk of the impact of these restrictions. The toll these restrictions are taking on small business is overwhelming and an increasing number of businesses are closing their doors permanently. An effective way to mitigate the spread of this disease across our border is a coordinated binational effort around social distancing and mask wearing.
