3. This guidance is necessary to ensure national security requirements are maintained with respect to the radiation screening and risk mitigation of marine containers as per Section 13 of the Customs Act (Presentation of Goods).

4. The following options are available until further notice:

  • Vessels wishing to discharge containers must report and present to the Port of Halifax, NS or Port of Saint John, NB or

5. Please note that this change is an interim process until the Port of Montreal re-opens for normal operations.

6. The CBSA is sensitive to the challenges facing the carrier industry, while requirements to comply with ACI remain, non-compliance will be managed responsibly in consideration of the current situation and timeframes for ACI transmissions will be relaxed as per D3-5-1 paragraph 133.
