Using your NEXUS card

Using your NEXUS card

NEXUS cards are issued by the Canada Border Services Agency to provide low-risk travelers with faster customs and immigration processing when crossing the border between Canada and the U.S..

During peak travel periods, CATSA typically offers NEXUS members a dedicated entrance that allows them to proceed directly to the front of the screening line, resulting in shorter wait times. Nexus card holders still have to undergo security screening.

 Dedicated NEXUS entrances are available at these airports:  

  • Calgary
  • Edmonton
  • Halifax
  • Kelowna
  • Moncton
  • Montréal
  • Ottawa
  • Québec City
  • Regina
  • Saskatoon
  • St. John’s
  • Toronto Pearson
  • Toronto City Centre
  • Vancouver
  • Victoria
  • Winnipeg

Family members or travel companions aren’t covered under just one card, so make sure that each member of your travel party has his or her own NEXUS card.
