Attention highway carriers using carrier code "77YY"

Important information concerning the elimination of carrier code "77YY"
With the implementation of eManifest in the highway mode beginning on October 31, 2010, the generic itinerant highway carrier code "77YY" will no longer be accepted for commercial cross-border activity. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will assign a unique carrier code that will become a legislated requirement for all carriers.

To prepare carriers and drivers currently using code "77YY", a transition period will begin on May 1, 2010, until the final elimination of code "77YY" on March 31, 2011.

For further information on the process for obtaining a carrier code, visit the Commercial Carriers section of the CBSA Web site or call the Border Information Service:
