Canada Delays the Launch of Border eManifest ... Again

Canada Border Service Agency delays the program requiring all highway and rail carriers to submit cargo info in advance of the border electronically

The Canada Border Service Agency announce last week, for the third time this year, that they will delay the launch of eManifest, a program that will eventually require all highway and rail carriers entering Canada from the United States to submit cargo information in advance of arriving at the border. In the announcement the agency said the delay was "due to timelines associated with the regulatory process."

Officials have delayed eManifest a total of three times in the past year, a program that was supposed to have gone live on Nov. 1, 2012, before being pushed back to May 2013, the the "fall 2013" and now indefinitely. All the Canada Border Services Agency can promise at this time is that the agency will provide 45 days advance notice before implementing and enforcing eManifest.
