Travel between the regions was limited to essential reasons, such as health care, custody, or compassionate grounds like attending a funeral.

With the reopening, Quebec Public Security Minister Geneviève Guilbault still urges caution while travelling between the two provinces.

Under the plan, Ontarians will also be allowed to dine in restaurants in la belle province — but they still have to respect measures in place.

The decision comes as the situation improves in both provinces and other pandemic-related restrictions have been relaxed in recent weeks.
