Urgent Notice for Shippers: Potential CBSA Strike and Its Impact on Shipments to and from Canada



Update: June 4, 2024


Attention cross-border shippers,


We are writing to inform you of a potential disruption to our services due to a possible strike by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) as early as June 6th.


What's Happening?

Over 9,000 CBSA employees, including border services officers, have been working without a contract for two years. They are seeking better wages, improved working conditions, and more flexibility around remote work. The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), the union representing CBSA workers, has voted in favor of strike action if their demands are not met.


How Could This Affect You?

A CBSA strike could lead to significant delays and disruptions at the border, impacting the movement of goods and people between Canada and the U.S. This could result in:

  • Longer wait times: Expect increased processing times at border crossings, ports, and airports.

  • Shipment delays: Shipments may experience delays, especially for goods that require customs clearance.

  • Travel disruptions: Travelers may face longer lines and potential cancellations or delays in flights and other transportation.


What We're Doing

We are closely monitoring the situation and working with our partners to minimize any potential disruptions to your shipments and travel plans. We will continue to update you as we receive more information.


What You Can Do

In the meantime, we recommend that you:

  • Plan ahead: If you have upcoming shipments or travel plans, consider adjusting your schedule or making alternative arrangements.

  • Stay informed: Follow the latest news and updates from the CBSA and PSAC.

  • Contact us: If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact our customer service team.


We understand that this situation may cause inconvenience and uncertainty. We are committed to working tirelessly to minimize any disruptions and ensure the safe and timely delivery of your shipments. Your trust and partnership are invaluable to us, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time.


We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide regular updates as new information becomes available. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
