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

 

PLEASE NOTE:

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.
