Travelling for Victoria Day or U.S. Memorial Day? The CBSA gives tips for a smoother trip

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) reminds travelers of what to expect when crossing the border over the Victoria Day and the U.S. Memorial Day long weekends.

Across the country, 8,700 CBSA front line employees are keeping harmful goods out of Canada, while ensuring legitimate travel and trade can continue efficiently and safely. In 2022, we facilitated the arrival of over 60 million travelers while keeping more than 1,100 firearms and 24,400 prohibited weapons off our streets and seized over 41,000 kg of illegal drugs.
