Ontario and Quebec this week rolled out new restrictions aimed at curbing the spiking cases.

Canada adds 975 new coronavirus cases, 14 more deaths on Monday .
Monday's fatalities also brings the country's total death toll to 9,627, while over 9.89 million tests have also been administered across Canada.

In a statement Monday, Canada's chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said that an average of 71,000 people were tested daily over the past week across the country, with 2.5 per cent testing positive.
