Expect long lines at the border this long weekend

CBSA warns to expect it to busy at all the crossings, with Peace Arch being the busiest

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) advises travellers to prepare for a busy Victoria Day long weekend at the border.

Last year, approximately 88,308 vehicles entered Canada through the five Lower Mainland border crossings during the Victoria Day long weekend (May 20 to 23, 2016). The busiest crossings were the Douglas (Peace Arch) and Pacific Highway crossings, which processed approximately 32,450 and 25,471 vehicles respectively.

They suggest to cross the border in the morning, especially if you plan to cross on a Sunday or Monday.

The Peace Arch crossing is the busiest land border crossing in British Columbia, and longer wait times begin building in the afternoon and carry on throughout the evening.

Alternatively, travellers can return to Canada through Aldergrove, Abbotsford-Huntingdon, Boundary Bay or Pacific Highway. For border wait times, download the mobile CanBorder app.
