OSHAWA –The City of Oshawa and Regional Municipality of Durham are working with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to ensure uninterrupted access to services to commercial clients and travellers while explaining how to access enhanced service options for processing commercial and personal entries by a central office at the Toronto Pearson International Airport (TPIA). Further, the Oshawa Executive Airport will also maintain its Airport of Entry designation and international flights will continue to arrive in Oshawa.

Although the CBSA Oshawa airport office has changed the model in which it provides staff, services will be delivered without disruption as officers will be dispatched to the Airport to meet international flights. Also, the level of service has been enhanced and includes clearance services 24 hours a day, seven days a week for commercial goods. This means extended hours for Oshawa Executive Airport clients which is a welcome change as originally the CBSA was going to provide services during specific hours from two separate locations, Billy Bishop Airport and an office in Mississauga. Passenger aircraft will continue to be cleared from 8:30 a.m. until midnight, seven days a week.

“We are pleased that the Federal Government has acknowledged that the Oshawa Executive Airport is critical in our ability to attract and maintain international business for Oshawa and the Region of Durham,” said Mayor John Henry. “The Oshawa Executive Airport will continue to be an international border crossing which is a key component of the Oshawa Airport Business Plan and enables local businesses of all sizes to engage efficiently in international trade and tourism, especially with the U.S. market.”

Canada Customs services are an essential factor in maintaining the Oshawa Executive Airport’s AOE/50 designation as it permits the Airport to be an international border crossing. It is anticipated that overall aircraft traffic is expected to grow from the current 67,000 to 102,000 aircraft movements per year over the next five years particularly given the pending closure of the Buttonville Airport. Further, demand for new hangar space has increased 260 per cent in the last 10 years and this rapid growth in demand for a CBSA-enabled airport is reflected in the growth of our internationally-connected Regional economy.
