CBSA Announces Creation of New Southern Ontario region

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 31, 2011) - The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) today announced administrative changes to its operations in southern Ontario. Effective April 1, 2011, the CBSA will amalgamate its two regions in Windsor/St. Clair and Niagara Falls/Ft. Erie.

This change will not impact border operations and all ports of entry and services offered will remain. The principle change is that the administration of the regional headquarters offices will be consolidated into one regional office located in Fort Erie. 

The amalgamation at the CBSA is part of the Government of Canada's Strategic Review Initiative which regularly reviews its programs to ensure that they are effective and efficient, that they respond to the priorities of Canadians, and that they are in line with core federal responsibilities. Strategic reviews ensure that resources are allocated to programs that are of a high priority for Canadians.
