Canada is getting ready to welcome the world again to non-essential travel.
    
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau quietly indicated the reopening plan Thursday night during a COVID-19 call with the premiers.
    
A readout of the call from the Prime Minister's Office disclosed a target of mid-August for when the border might reopen for fully vaccinated Americans.
    
Trudeau also said if Canada's current positive path of vaccination rate and public-health conditions continue, then Canada could be in a position to welcome fully vaccinated travelers from all countries by early September.
    
The border has been closed to non-essential travel since the early weeks of the pandemic.
