Border Clearance

Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) provides border clearance services for Non-CANPASS general aviation type flights to the Brandon Municipal Airport.

After 9/11, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) stopped providing Canada Customers services to Brandon. In order to regain customs services, the City of Brandon has to purchase customs services on a "per aircraft" basis. Brandon Airport will then charge this cost of customs fees directly to the aircraft owner. This fee normally ranges between $500.00 - $1000.00 per aircraft, but could be greater. The aircraft owner will receive a bill for the exact amount within 60 days of the landing.

This service is provided, seven days a week, during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST (09:00 and 17:00 hrs). CBSA officers from the Boissevain office travel to the Brandon Municipal Airport, including statutory holidays, if required.


Holidays include

  • New Year's Day
  • Louis Riel Day
  • Good Friday
  • Easter Monday
  • Victoria Day
  • Canada Day
  • August Civic Holiday
  • Labour Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Remembrance Day
  • Christmas Day
  • Boxing Day



The City of Brandon invoices the customer (aircraft) for all costs incurred by the CBSA.

The Brandon Municipal Airport does not incur costs associated with border clearances for all Non-CANPASS general aviation type flights.
