Cost of Trusted-Traveller Program to Jump by 140%

Updated: Jun 27

According to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the Nexus application fee is scheduled to increase from US$50 to $120 on Oct. 1, 2024.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) NEXUS program speeds up border crossings for frequent travellers from Canada and the United States. Since 2002, the bilateral trusted traveller program has supported communities and economic interests on both sides of the border by expediting the crossing of pre-screened travellers and allowing border officers to focus more attention on stopping illegal activities and criminals.

The current fee, set over 20 years ago, no longer covers the cost of the program. The new fee would reflect more accurately the cost of administering the program and the investment required for future program improvements, including technology and infrastructure enhancements.

Further information provided to ATAC by the CBSA indicated that Nexus card holders with less than a year to go before expiry can apply to pay the old fee of US$50 as long as the application has been submitted before Oct. 1, 2024.
