Canadian gov’t reminds citizens about rules for international travel this summer
On Friday morning, Global Affairs Canada issued a press release reminding Canadians that although Canada is reopening, international travel should be avoided. Although, the government organization recognized that some exceptions had to be made. Here’s a quick rundown.
Basically, it’s reinforcing the initial advisory to avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada. On top of that, cruise ships are still a no go for citizens as well. As for Canadians abroad? The vast majority have returned home, with the final flights happening over the next few weeks.

But, people do still need to travel internationally, and airlines around the world are gearing up to serve them. For that group, the government wants to hammer home the point that you should follow all of its safety guidelines, both in Canada and abroad.
As for us? Well, it looks like we’re about to experience the summer of Canadian exploration. Maybe we’ll portage a canoe a few hundred kilometres in Saskatchewan instead of that trip to Berlin we planned. Yeah, that’s a reasonable alternative.
