The US – Canada land borders will open in November for non-essential travel

The US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the US – Canada land borders will re-open for non-essential travel in November 2021.

Although the full details of the reopening plan have not been revealed, it is expected that the US government will allow all fully vaccinated travellers who have received any World Health Organization (WHO) approved vaccine to enter the country.

This means fully vaccinated Canadians will be able to travel by land to the US presenting proof of vaccination documentation, without submitting negative COVID-19 tests.

Canada’s labour shortage becomes more severe

Due to the pandemic, the sharp decrease in the numbers of new immigrants has exacerbated the shortage of skilled workers in Canada.

Recently, the Royal Bank of Canada released a report that pointed out that if Canadian employers and policymakers do not make changes, the shortage of skilled workers will continue to worsen in the next decade.

The immigration trend in Canada always follows the demand of the labour market.

The report stated that before the pandemic, Canada had been working hard to maintain a stable flow of skilled workers in the labour market.
