OTTAWA –

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has agreed to phase out a cabinet order enforcing mandatory COVID-19 vaccination requirements at the Canadian border later this month.

The news was confirmed by two senior government sources, who spoke to The Canadian Press on condition that they not be named because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

The federal government is still deciding whether the mask requirement for passengers on trains and planes should be retained.

Airplane and train masking rules are not included in the same order and will be discussed separately.

The federal cabinet is meeting this afternoon, but no cabinet approval is needed for the order to expire, as the version agreed in June said it would expire on September 30.

The expiring regulation also affects mandatory and random tests for foreign travelers.
