The Canada Border Services Agency and its over 8,000 frontline officers have implemented new travel restrictions across all ports of entry in all modes of transportation – land, sea, air and rail. The health and safety of Canadians is vital. At the same time, borders remain open for commer-cial and business operations; the Agency will continue to facilitate the flow of goods. The CBSA is fully prepared to process all commercial goods for entry.
“Canadians around the world are heeding advice to return home, and, as a result, some travellers may be experiencing increased wait times at some airports and land entry points. If you are still outside of Canada and planning to return by land, border wait times are available online or on our app and could help you plan your return."
“The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is committed to limiting the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. Health and safety remains our top priority. Canada’s border services officers are professionals and have experience ensuring the health and safety of Canadians and Canada’s economy."

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) plays a vital role in upholding the integrity of our borders, helping to grow our economy and keeping Canadians safe. Acting as Canada’s first line of defence, the CBSA would like to highlight some of the results achieved last year, and how it contributed to protecting Canadians and communities.
