Last week the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) marked the completion of work at the Fraser port of entry in Northern British Columbia, the first under the Land Border Crossing Project.
The upgraded Fraser port of entry was constructed using a modular building kit in partnership with Natural Resources Canada, a building and design method that contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and supports sustainable development commitments.
The new and energy efficient facility includes enhancements in safety, security and technology, while also meeting the requirements of Canada’s northern weather. It replaces the former structure which opened in 1979.
Pre-pandemic, the Fraser port of entry processed more than 360,000 travellers per year. It is the northernmost port in British Columbia, located 185 kilometres south of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory on the South Klondike Highway.
Under CBSA’ Land Border Crossing Project, twenty-four ports of entry will be renewed across Canada in the Pacific, Prairie, Quebec and Atlantic regions over the next eight years.
