CBSA CHANGES PRELIMINARY PORT OF ENTRY QUESTION

TERRITORY OF AKWESASNE – The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne wishes to inform the community that effective immediately, the Canada Border Services Agency has implemented a new Primary Question to be asked of ALL travelers.

The new Primary Question is as follows: “Are you, your vehicle or any goods in your possession arriving from the United States?” 

It is CBSA’s hope that in asking the question in this manner it will alleviate some of the ambiguities that resulted from asking the former Primary Question, which was: “Where are you coming from?”

If you encounter any issues at the Cornwall Port of Entry, do not hesitate to contact MCA’s Community Advocate on CBSA Complaints Wesley Benedict at (613) 936-1548 ext. 1031 or (613) 551-6999.
