Canadian citizens and permanent residents arriving at Pearson International Airport’s Terminal 3 will soon have dedicated lanes designed to expedite their entry into the country, airport officials have announced.
But before that happens, all passengers arriving on international and trans-border flights could face delays during construction of these new “Canadian Resident Queues” at the terminal’s Customs Hall.
The renovations are scheduled for completion at the end of November, says a news release issued Monday by Canada Border Services Agency (“CBSA”) and Greater Toronto Airports Authority.
Many countries have airports that divide customs queues into citizen- and non-citizen queues.
About 33 million travellers pass through Canada’s largest airport annually.
