for those that have done the interview, once you have your appointment scheduled. Do you just walk in at your timeslot and do the interview right away? or is there still a long wait time when you arrive at lets say the YYZ location for example? Is there an actual time slot youre reserved for or are you just booking a day to go in and NOT a specific time?
Both times (2010 and 2015) we were early for our interview.

The first time (Fort Erie) the US interviewer said "Are you the xxxs?", we said "Yes" and he said "Normally Canada does you first, but if you don't mind me first, I can start with you right away", and so we did.

The second time (Toronto Pearson) we booked a conservative time as we were having our interviews in the middle of a CDG-YYZ-YQR connection, but we were over an hour early for our appointment. We put our names on the paper list as requested, and were called up within three or four minutes. We were out of the interview centre, through security and in the lounge relaxing before our scheduled interview time.

Was just about to post this. Things are really getting out of control
deleted to keep the site family friendly. Was about copping sick fadez.
Well there's no sick fadez left to be copped now that the regimen cannot be admired in all its glory
RIP sick fadez.

Awful. If the Nexus process isn't "extreme vetting" I don't know what is.

A lot of crossings (among the ones I've used, Sault Ste. Marie, ON/MI, Pembina, ND/Emerson, MB and Sweetgrass, MT/Coutts, AB) have only part-time NEXUS hours, so that's nothing unusual.

200 Canadian people have been unable to use their Nexus cards to cross the American border since U.S. President Donald Trump ordered a temporary halt to immigration from certain countries, none of them are Canadian citizens


Since Trump order, 200 have lost access to Nexus: public safety minister

Unless you are a permanent resident from one of the seven countries named in the Executive Order, nothing to worry about, at the moment.
