Border Opening Information for our Blue Haven Families:


New Information added November 18th

Promising news on the way!

Several sources are reporting some pretty amazing news for our Canadian families!

Again, we can’t stress this enough – it is the responsibility of the traveler to know what is required – KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!

While there are still some limitations in place at the moment, this is most certainly a step in the right direction!

Stay safe and we will see all of you in the Spring!
