Seems only foreigners, while Canadian citizens would be able to return home.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Will pose a problem for Americans using the chartered TLV-YZZ flight on 3/18. They’re going to connect in Canada.

A ahort connecting flight shouldn't be an issue.

It could be if borders are shut down and connecting flights are cancelled.

The borders are shut for foreigners, while people coming back home will have to remain at home for a couple of days, not to infect others if they caught any type of COVID19.

First Trudeau and Freeland were going on and on not to close any borders or cancel flights, what changed? Reality or US pressure?

Maybe his wife getting the virus changed his thinking.

Canada closing borders to most travellers who are not citizens

Canada is closing its borders to non-citizens because of the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Monday.

"We can still slow the spread of this virus," Trudeau said. "It is time to take every precaution to keep people safe."

Canada will make some exceptions to the closure of its borders, including for U.S. citizens.

"Let me be clear, if you're abroad, it's time to come home," Trudeau said, speaking to Canadian citizen.

This is breaking news. Check back for updates.

People are very misinformed (in general). My wife has an coworker who thinks she won’t be allowed in for Pesach to be at her parents. Why don’t people do proper research?

No urgent reasons given. A prudent step to take is the reason.

A few days ago a 15 passenger van with both US and canadian citizens travelling to a bar mitzvah were told only the canadians can pass (they turn around and went to an off route border where they all passed...)

Now that the border is closed for ALL non essential travel, should I assume my flights from US to Canada for Pesach will be canceled and refunded?  Flying to Canada using AA miles and returning with paid AC flight
Common sense is not a gift, it is a punishment.
Because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.
