TORONTO (WCAX) - The rules to cross the border into Canada could change by the end of the month.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau still needs to sign off on the decision, but it would drop the vaccine requirement for people who enter Canada.

It would end on Sept. 30.

It would also end random COVID testing at airports.

Filling out information in the ArriveCAN app would also no longer be required.

The U.S.-Canada border completely reopened to car traffic in November of last year after closing at the start of the pandemic.

Canada is similar to the U.S. in that it currently requires noncitizens to be vaccinated when entering the country. It was not immediately known whether the U.S. will make a similar move by Sept. 30.
