The Toronto Blue Jays have received permission from the federal government to return to Canada.

A spokesperson for Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino told Global News Friday evening that the government gave its approval for a plan to operate in the country amid lingering COVID-19 restrictions.

In a statement released by the team, the first home game at Rogers Centre will happen on July 30.

Under Step 3 of the Ontario government’s reopening plan, which came into effect on Friday, up to 15,000 spectators or 75 per cent of the usual seating capacity are allowed at outdoor sports facilities.

More to come.
