Janet Mills asks Canada to ease restrictions on Americans on border golf course

New Brunswick Governor Janet Mills and Prime Minister Blaine Higgs have joined forces to ask the Canada Border Services Agency to relax restrictions on Americans who want to play at the 18-hole Aroostook Valley Country Club.

Mills and Higgs wrote a letter together to Erin O’Gorman, president of the Canada Border Services Agency in Ottawa, Ontario, asking for a solution that would make it easier for Americans to play the popular 93-year-old course.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Americans were unable to play the course for nearly two years. Americans must complete a series of steps — including providing proof of COVID-19 vaccination — to access the course. The country club has not yet regained the memberships it had before the pandemic and at one point feared the company was in jeopardy.
