This is a campaign by Canadian American Business Council

The trusted traveler program that hundreds of thousands of Canadians rely on for expedited travel is at risk.

What's happening with NEXUS?

During the pandemic, the NEXUS enrollment offices in Canada and the US were closed. When the border reopened, the US reopened its offices, but Canada did not. Why? Because the US officers that staff the Canadian centers refused to return to work until they receive normal legal protections from the Canadian government — the same protections Canadian officers receive in the US. Canada is resisting providing those protections, and the US is fed up.


Canada has said it wants the US officers to work without those legal protections. US has said officers won't do that. So the two governments are trying to work it out.

What are the Possible Solutions to Saving NEXUS?

1. Canada could provide legal protection to US officers operating in Canada.

2. Canada and the US could create a “remote” interview system, but this will potentially take years to operationalize.
3. Canada could decide that NEXUS is too hard to save, and switch to another trusted traveler program that many countries use to enter the US called “Global Entry.”

Dear <politician_name>,

We need the Prime Minister to expand the NEXUS pilot to all Canada/US border crossings in order to clear the backlog and save the program. <supporter_personal_comments>
