Both the Canadian and American federal governments have recognized and reinforced the importance of continuing with the unimpeded flow of goods between our two countries. This means the Canada/U.S. border remains open for international trade. We will continue to monitor the events affecting trade, and will provide updates to our website should conditions change.

Let’s all do our best to stay safe throughout these extraordinary times.
