Email Alert Service
CBSA Border Alert Service

The CBSA Border Alert Service notifies subscribers when unexpected events cause a significant disruption to normal border services. When a service disruption occurs at one of the ports listed below, a Border Alert is issued to subscribers, identifying the impacted port and recommending alternate ports of entry. The ports chosen are our busiest land border crossings.

Border Alerts will not be issued in response to normal increases in traffic volumes or planned events (such as construction at a port of entry).

We will do our best to ensure border services return to normal as soon as possible and will notify subscribers when normal operations have resumed. However, we remind subscribers to monitor all information sources, such as local media and Web sites, for updates.

Subscribers are responsible for ensuring they provide the CBSA with a valid e-mail address and may unsubscribe at any time.
