Saratoga, NY – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has issued the below statement following Prime Minister Trudeau’s announcement that fully vaccinated U.S. citizens could be allowed to enter Canada in August:

“I will continue to be one of the leading voices and advocates for the safe re-opening of our Northern Border. Our small businesses, property owners, families, and North Country communities are united in support. After my recent advocacy efforts to Canadian Premiers and Members of Parliament, we are starting to see forward movement to re-opening from the Canadian government. Our goal remains a full re-opening and I will continue my full court press with both Canada and the Biden Administration. It is long past overdue.”
