Canada announced this week that it will reopen its border to fully vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents starting Monday, Aug. 9. Permanent residents of the United States currently residing in the U.S., will be permitted to enter Canada for discretionary, or non-essential travel.
A Covid-19 vaccination must be complete 14 days prior to entry. Children under the age of 12 or who are not yet eligible for vaccination in the U.S. or unvaccinated dependent children will be allowed to enter the country with a fully vaccinated parent, step-parent, tutor or guardian who is eligible to enter Canada.
Entry to the country will be denied to U.S. travelers who are not fully vaccinated and all other foreign nationals.
No protocol has been announced as yet that would allow U.S. anglers to cross the Canadian border in order to sport fish without setting foot on Canadian soil, a popular practice for Lake Erie fishermen.
