Plan Ahead If Heading South This Weekend: CBSA

The Canadian Border Services Agency is reminding Manitobans to plan ahead this long weekend if travelling south of the border.

The CBSA says increased traffic volumes are expected at ports of entry as travellers take advantage of the holiday on Monday.

The agency suggests ensuring all travellers have their proper documents ready to show a CBSA officer and that goods are properly declared.

Additional border staff will also be on hand to meet the demand and ensure travellers pass through quickly.

If heading to North Dakota, check the wait times at the Pembina, ND crossing online. Heading home? Monitor times for the Emerson, MB crossing or follow @CBSA_EMR on Twitter.
