IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said Thursday that it will delay a plan to restrict the acceptance of applications for permanent residence landings and new work permits at ports of entry in southern Ontario.
What does the change mean? Ports of entry in southern Ontario – including Fort Erie, Niagara Falls, Queenstown and Rainbow Bridge – will continue to accept port-of-entry applications as normal until further notice. A plan to restrict schedules for accepting port-of-entry applications was announced Tuesday and was expected to take effect this week, but was subsequently delayed.
BAL Analysis: For the time being, port-of-entry applications will be accepted at southern Ontario ports of entry seven days a week. BAL will continue to follow this issue and will provide clients with information about any possible restrictions once CBSA makes it available.
