The Canadian government is set to make changes to the rules on their cross-border policies, allowing more situations for people to enter into Canada for purposes of family unification.

The specifics of these restrictions are to be announced at 2:30 pm EST in a press conference involving the Ministers of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Public Safety and Health, along with all other updates to travel regulations and border security.

According to CTV News, the Canada/US land border is still going to be officially closed until October 21, at the very earliest. What is going to change, according to unnamed sources, is the definition of who can cross the border to visit a family member of common-law partner on grounds of compassion.

The current measure in place since June 9 allows for immediate family members of citizens or permanent residents of Canada to enter Canada to reunite with their loved ones, provided that they stay in Canada for a minimum of 15 days, among other things.

These exceptions to the border closure are expected to be extended to other family members, such as non-dependent children, grandchildren and siblings among potentially others. Also, additional exceptions for people entering to mourn the death of a loved one who is not a family member are expected to be put in place.
