Your Critical Update on What is Happening at Ontario Ports of Entry 

Jan. 28, 2021

OBA Citizenship and Immigration Law PROGRAM | 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)

It has now been over nine months since the Canada-US border was closed to all non-essential travel, with no clear end date in sight. As practitioners continue to grapple with these unusual circumstances, ensure you are up to speed with this critical program. Join us to hear directly from those making the determinations on the ground at the ports of entry, as our CBSA representatives share the latest news and insights from the border, including:

  • What is the process for and how are quarantine exemptions being determined?
  • Are temporary residence applications being processed at the POEs?
  • Helpful examples of the types of purposes or activities considered essential for business visitors
  • How is CBSA dealing with fully vaccinated travellers, and those who cannot show a negative PCR test upon arrival at Pearson airport?
  • Updates on the ArriveCAN App

Get your most pressing questions answered and gather the advice you need to best represent your clients.
