Effective May 20th, 2022, the CBSA will resume services to over 300 ports of entry between Canada and the U.S.

On May 19th, Canadian Public Safety Minister Marco Mendocino announced that Canadian ports of entry would be reopening 'soon' to coincide with boating season.

Most within the industry expected any reopenings to occur over several weeks, likely in June.

But today the CBSA made the announcement today that over 300 marine ports of entry are available for reopening as of May 20th, 2022. The turnaround is a welcome decision for boaters on both sides of the border, and will coincide with May Long weekend Canada and the upcoming Memorial Day weekend in the U.S.

The CBSA will resume services at most small vessel reporting sites that were previously closed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Via the official CBSA statement:

"As of May 20, 2022, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will resume services at most small vessel reporting sites as outlined in the list below. These changes are part of a phased approach to gradually reopen CBSA sites still affected by the temporary measures put in place as a result of COVID-19.

Overview of small vessel reporting sites where CBSA services will resume, by province:

  • Ontario: 255

  • Quebec: 9

  • Newfoundland: 8

  • New Brunswick: 13

  • Nova Scotia: 12

  • Manitoba : 1

  • Alberta : 1

  • British Columbia: 17

Travelers are encouraged to visit the CBSA Directory of CBSA Offices and Services for more details."
