Niagara Falls, Ontario, January 5, 2011 – The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) today announced that following a review of its NEXUS services in the Niagara-Fort Erie Region, the Canada-bound Rainbow Bridge NEXUS lane will be closing, effective January 23, 2011. This will enable the CBSA to concentrate on delivering its services to the wide range of other travellers using the Rainbow Bridge. NEXUS members can continue to use the NEXUS-only lanes at the Whirlpool Bridge.
NEXUS members are reminded that a NEXUS card can be used as a proof of identity and as a document which denotes citizenship in all lanes and in the marine mode. When using regular lanes, however, program privileges are not applicable.
The Traveller Declaration Card (TDC) is now available online. Three easy steps: fill out your TDC online; print and complete; and drop off your TDC when entering Canada.
