Government of Canada announces measures to reduce airport congestion, ArriveCAN remains in force
Since April, more than 1,600 CATSA screening officers have been hired across Canada, the government announced today. The number of screening officers at Toronto Pearson International Airport and Vancouver International Airport are now over 100 percent of summer target levels. Efforts to increase screening officer staff levels at all airports continue.
The Greater Toronto Airports Authority and the CBSA are also adding 10 new eGates and 30 more primary inspection kiosks at Toronto Pearson International Airport by the end of this week.
Travellers arriving at Toronto Pearson International Airport or Vancouver International Airport, and later this month at Montréal-Trudeau International Airport, will be able to use the Advance CBSA Declaration optional feature in ArriveCAN to submit their customs and immigration declaration in advance of arrival.
