Sources say Justin Trudeau will discuss the option with provincial and regional chiefs last night.

And according to these sources, Ottawa is expected to announce this morning that it is once again advising Canadians not to make unnecessary trips.

The recommendation comes into effect two months after the border was opened to international travelers on October 21 and one month after the land border with the United States opened on November 8.

The federal government says it is very concerned after receiving new data on the expected improvement in the Omicron variant.

“Canadians have a lot of worries about what will happen to them if they travel abroad. The Omicron variant is deploying very quickly, and our concern is that Canadians will be stranded abroad by measures that other countries could implement very quickly. In addition to the risk of catching this variation abroad, then the situation would be even more complicated for these Canadians outside the country, ”explained Union Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos yesterday.
