More details to come, but it looks as though the border into Canada will be open to fully vaccinated travelers in the not too distant future. Looks like there may be some additional restrictions for partially vaccinated people, but it's a hopeful start.

When the Canadians are ready. No need to rush. Slowing American vaccination rates are a concern.

Ah , looks like this new change coming only applies to Canadians and PR's . It's still up in the air about international travel , and there is a concern over the dropping vaccination rates in the US. I can see them opening up the border to other countries first and not the US!

the anouncment was for fully vacanated canadians returning home. all it was is that they no longer have to quarenteen for 14 days , only for the time it takes to get a negitive test result. as for limited opening of the boarder, I am thinking september long weekend would be my guess. there is no camping available in BC or banff/jasper untill then anyaways, I have been trying to get a spot for a month now, its worse then when the boarders were open a few years ago ....

I guess I was lucky with BC Parks reservation system. We are set to head out again tomorrow morning on our 5th BC Parks camping trip this season, and we are staying in our Health region and haven’t left the west Kootenays.
I will say that we reserved every site ( campground), on line 2 months ago when the reservation system opened up.
When I booked all my campground sites it showed very few unreserved sites available in theses campgrounds, so we grabbed what was available.
We have yet to be in one of these campgrounds that were even 1/4 full. Now we are only camping Monday to Friday morning so the weekend warriors aren’t out yet. But everyone of these campgrounds showed there were just about fully booked with “maybe” 1 or 2 available sites, and when we got there the place was nearly empty. Even the FCFS site weren’t full. So if you live close to any Provincial campgrounds, go have a peek, and I’ll bet they are not full on the weekdays. Heck we went to a local PP last weekend to visit some friends and that campground wasn’t even full on a weekend.
Something is fishy with the BC PP reservation system.

What a joke. They're initiating a "GROUP" to study it....again? https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/c........fully-vaccinated-citizens-pm-2021-06-08/

This was said over a month ago. and the results are???

Well, no problem. As I said previously, if the border didn't open by April 21, we wouldn't be heading north this year or ever again. And it didn't and we aren't. We have a contract pending on the RV and will NOT be buying another. It was a good run while it lasted, over 250,000 RV miles since 2003, (9 driving trips to Alaska and Canada) but as long as the idiot politicians continue to play politics, they won't have us in the game. A great time to sell a high end RV though.
