Yes, for renewal. My application back in November already said there was a backlog and it would take longer than normal.
Great for you. I suspect that they have caught up all the backlog and are working again. I waited from November till I got it.

Is the Toronto centre just closed? I've been conditionally approved since about April but Toronto just shows no available appointments...

Yeah, it's still closed.
They just cancelled my September appointment, earliest one I can see for Ft. Erie is now in December during Christmas week.
Don't see any available appointments after that.

I haven't received my cancellation yet for late Sept...was the cancellation during the beginning or later parts of Sept?

This is what I got from them:

The Fort Erie Enrollment Center will remain closed until at least September 30, 2020. Enrollment Centers within the United States will reopen on September 8, 2020 for Global Entry applicants only. We will not process any NEXUS applications until Canadian Border Services Agency returns to the enrollment Center. Applicants are encouraged to monitor their e-mail and Trusted Traveler Programs account for additional information and/or updates.


Again, not sure if it's affecting other Centres but Fort Erie for sure.

I'm wondering if they'll extend the expiration of current Nexus passes...I'm surprised they even need to do an interview for a renewal....

None of the four enrollment centres in Ontario are accepting appointments for interviews presently.
Nothing to do but wait I guess.

Anyone know if the Calgary centre is actually open? I'm in Edmonton but there's no appointments and I don't want to plan for a trip to Calgary if I make a booking and it'll just get cancelled until the border actually reopens.

And my interview was just cancelled:
CBP Trusted Traveler Programs Enrollment Centers will remain closed until at least October 5, 2020. This temporary closure includes all public access to Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, and FAST enrollment locations. Applicants are encouraged to monitor their Trusted Traveler Programs account for additional information and/or updates. CBP will continue to monitor federal response guidelines in order to resume enrollment center operations as soon as possible.

CBP’s highest priority is to ensure the health, safety and security of our workforce and the American people. CBP agents, officers, and mission support personnel continue to support the whole-of-government response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Oh well..

Not really a problem right now. Cross-border traffic is so thin right now, I wouldn't think that having to use a non-NEXUS lane would be all that time-consuming.

Now, once things return to normal, there will be a backlog of interviews on which to catch up, but I'm sure priority will be given to people who have already had interviews scheduled.

I just really want to get it done since I’ve been waiting for so long since I applied (mid November last year). And so that when things do open up again, I’ll have my card and be able to use it.

There’s no particular rush right now, since I have no intention to travel to the US for the foreseeable future, but still..

Weird, my wife's appointment is Oct 3 and it's not cancelled yet.

EDIT: Spoke too soon, just got the email. :(

The NEXUS card expiration dates are extended as it says on their website.

There is no appointment required for renewal.
