Siblings, grandparents and adult children of Canadians and permanent residents are among those who will soon be exempt from COVID-19 border restrictions.
The expansion of who can enter Canada came at a Friday afternoon announcement by Marco Mendicino, minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, alongside health minister Patty Hadju,.
Those who don’t directly qualify under the expanded family rules will be able to apply to enter for compassionate reasons.
The specifics around how compassionate entry and the expanded family list will work are to be rolled out next week.
