May 16, 2024     Little Gold, YT     Canada Border Services Agency

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is advising travellers that the Little Gold Creek port of entry is expected to open on May 19.

As the Top of the World Highway remained closed longer than anticipated due to weather conditions, access to the port of entry was delayed, making it impossible to open on May 17 as originally planned. CBSA staff and contractors have now accessed the site and are preparing the facility for an expected opening on May 19.
