To keep you informed of recent developments in our federal and provincial/territorial governments’ economic response to COVID‑19, we will provide updates of key government announcements that may impact you or your business.

July 14, 2022 update

Our updates are provided when there are relevant or significant government announcements. Information is accurate as at 3:00 p.m. EDT. Information may be affected by subsequent announcements.

Links to government announcements follow at the end of the update.


  • Canada - Remote Area Border Crossing (RABC) program to resume: The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has resumed the RABC program, which facilitates the border clearance process for certain travellers who wish to cross the border into Canada in certain remote regions of northwestern Ontario and southeastern Manitoba. This is part of a phased approach to gradually resume CBSA services still affected by temporary COVID‑19 measures.

  • Prince Edward Island - Public health measures extended: The requirements to: (i) wear a face mask in high‑risk settings (e.g. long‑term care, community care homes and hospitals); and (ii) isolate for those who test positive for COVID‑19, will remain in place until further notice (they were scheduled to end on July 14, 2022).
