Border waits expected here

the CBSA

The Canada Border Services Agency is reminding travellers to plan their border crossing to avoid delays over the Labour Day weekend.
In anticipation of higher traffic volumes and limits to the volume of traffic that can be processed at some ports of entry this weekend, travellers are advised to consider the potential for delays at the Fort Frances port of entry.
Peak traffic volumes are anticipated here between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. today (Sept. 2), between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. tomorrow (Sept. 3), and between noon and 7 p.m. on Labour Day (Sept. 5), when border wait times may exceed 30 minutes.
Travellers in Northwestern Ontario also may choose to enter Canada via the Rainy River port of entry, where peak traffic volumes are anticipated between 4 and 9 p.m. on Sunday and Monday (Sept. 4-5), when border wait times may exceed 30 minutes.
Peak traffic volume information and anticipated border wait times are based on historical data.
The CBSA anticipates an increase in traffic this weekend from previous years based on traffic volume trends to date in 2011.
The forecast traffic volumes may vary from one port of entry to another depending on numerous factors, including weather conditions.
