Border agency employees in Canada voted in favour of industrial action, which could cause delays at land crossings, airports, and ports, affecting daily trade from the USA into Canada.

According to a circular from Noatum Logistics, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) notified the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat that it received a positive strike vote from Border Services Group, which represents over 9,000 employees at the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). PSAC could initiate a legal strike effective June 6, pending a 72-hour notice period.

The Canadian government has indicated that 90 percent of front-line border staff are considered essential and must work during a strike but operations may still slow down. Electronic Customs entries will continue to receive automatic releases if they pass system validation, though manual processing may face delays. Ocean shipments will generally not be affected unless flagged for inspection. Noatum added that this action would have a minimal impact on goods entering the USA from Canada.
