Canada will be removing the testing requirements at airports and land border crossings, CBC News said, adding that the requirements will be dropped by the end of March.

Currently, travellers need to show proof of a negative antigen or molecular test within a day of their flight or arrival at the border.

The federal government will continue to randomly test travellers upon arrival in Canada to identify and track variants, the CBC reported.

Travel and business groups have been lobbying the government to relax COVID testing requirements at borders. Vaccine mandates on flights and trains are expected to remain.
