Message from CBSA for US Camp Owners
Spring is approaching and we are seeing pandemic restrictions lifting. I think we are all looking forward to warmer weather and the return to more ‘normal’ operations at our Ports of Entry in Northern Ontario.
If you are interested in pre-arrival work permit processing we ask that you contact the Port of Entry where you normally cross:
In other changes, on January 1, 2022 Ontario’s Sustainable Bait Management Strategy came into effect to reduce ecological risks associated with the use and movement of bait in Ontario. CBSA plays an important role in Protecting Canada from invasive species (cbsa-asfc.gc.ca) Accordingly, personal importations of bait at ports in Northern Ontario (Sault Ste. Marie, Pigeon River, Fort Frances and Rainy River) are NOT permitted and will be refused entry.
