As you may have seen in the news today, there are reports of the Canadian border reopening for US citizens and permanent residents of the US on August 9, 2021!! What great news!

RBAW is following this news closely and checking the Canadian Government, Nexus and US CBP website for information related to travel by water (marine mode). We anticipate this information being very "fluid" over the next few weeks, and we recommend to check this information frequently for updates.

Please see the links below for the most current information which references vaccination and pre-testing requirements. As we receive any additional information we'll be sure to pass along!
