Their sources also say Canadian officials aren’t overly enthusiastic as some U.S. authorities have suggested relaxing some of the measures in the near term.
Reuters says Canadian officials, especially those in provinces bordering the U.S., insist the restrictions remain in place for some time.
The ban, which does not cover trade or air travel, was first imposed in March.
The current range of restrictions is slated to expire on Monday, September 21.
