Area border crossings return to pre-pandemic hours

The Canada Border Services Agency has reinstated pre-pandemic operational hours of service at over 40 crossing points along the Canada-U.S. border, including seven land ports of entry in Quebec.

As of March 31, the Hemmingford and Trout River crossing points will be open 24 hours per day, seven days a week, as will the Frelighsburg, Highwater, Lacolle Route 221, and Stanstead (Route 143) ports of entry. The Dundee, Herdman, and Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle ports of entry had previously been returned to full 24/7 operational hours.

Marco Mendicino, the federal minister of public safety, says the expansion of hours at points of entry will make it easier for border communities that rely on small crossing points “to do everything from getting goods to market to seeing friends and family.” (SR)
