Fort Erie pilot project

To test eGate at a high volume port of entry, a pilot was conducted at Peace Bridge, in Fort Erie, Ontario, for a period of one year, starting in May 2014. Although the pilot is now completed, NEXUS eGate remains available at that location, and extends NEXUS hours of service to allow 24/7 access.

eGate at other locations

The CBSA is currently reviewing the results of the pilot project in order to develop recommendations for a way forward. Installation of NEXUS eGate technology at other ports of entry will be considered on a case-by-case basis if it is determined that the pilot was successful and expansion is beneficial overall.
