As the only national association in Canada representing the views and interests of private and dedicated fleets, The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada recognizes the utmost importance of representing the views and interests of our members. We are committed to providing expanded educational and networking opportunities to our members throughout this great country.

 As stated by PMTC President Mike Millian:

“During the past 8 years, the PMTC has been hosting events in Western Canada, Ontario and  Eastern Canada. We have also participated in numerous consultations and stakeholder meetings with the federal, provincial, and territorial governments on a wide range of subjects. Our goal is to ensure that the views of our members are represented and heard. 

While we believe that we have been effectively representing our members from coast to coast in recent years, our board of directors feels that it is time to take the next step. As a result, we are looking to hire someone who resides in the western region of Canada, to ensure we have boots on the ground, someone who has their ear to the ground and understands what is important to our members,"

The job will start out as a part-time role on a contract basis, with the opportunity for the role to expand within the PMTC.

PMTC Chair, Steve Lawn, went on to say. "It has always been the goal of the PMTC to have individuals in each region of the country to ensure that we can represent our members as effectively as possible in every jurisdiction. After several successful years, the PMTC is now in a strong financial position to increase our spending and allocate resources to initiate this process. We firmly believe that this will bring significant value to both our current and future members.”

OROVILLE, Wash. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations would like to announce dates for an upcoming NEXUS and FAST enrollment event held by CBP and Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) at the Oroville/Osoyoos land border Port of Entry.  The event will take place on Sept. 12-13, where CBP and CBSA will conduct interviews for conditionally approved FAST/NEXUS applicants.   

Oroville/Osoyoos Port of Entry – 33643 Highway 97 North
Oroville, WA 98844
Parking – Visitor Parking lot right outside the port on Highway 97
Second floor, Room SA225 – Conference Room – Check in with officer in the cargo lobby.
Office – (509) 476-3132
Sept. 12, 8 a.m. – noon / 12:30 – 4 p.m.
Sept. 13, 8 a.m. – noon / 12:30 – 4 p.m.

NEXUS is a voluntary expedited clearance initiative for pre-approved low-risk international travelers.  Membership in the program allows members to reduce their wait times at designated ports of entry by:

  • Using NEXUS processing lanes at designated northern border ports of entry.
  • Using NEXUS kiosks when entering Canada by air,
  • using Global Entry kiosk when entering the United States, and
  • if arriving by sea, reporting arrival into the U.S. and Canada by calling a marine telephone reporting center.

The Trusted Traveler Free and Secure Trade (FAST) program is a commercial clearance program that allows expedited processing for commercial carriers who have completed background checks and fulfill certain eligibility requirements.  FAST enrollment is open to truck drivers from the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Travelers interested in applying for NEXUS/FAST membership need to apply online utilizing the Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) Enrollment System at https://ttp.cbp.dhs.gov.  The $50 application fee allows for five years of membership.  Once an individual applies online, they will undergo a background investigation.  If no disqualifying information is found, they will receive a conditional letter of approval through their TTP account.  They may then utilize the online scheduling tool in their TTP account to confirm an appointment for the event. 

“CBP recognizes there is a high demand for NEXUS/FAST program membership, and we are hoping to meet that demand by partnering with local stakeholders to hold enrollment events in locations that are geographically convenient for conditionally approved applicants to complete their required interview with a CBP officer,” said Harmit Gill, Area Port Director.

With the enrollment event quickly approaching any applicant wishing to take advantage of this opportunity should begin the application process immediately.  More information on CBP’s NEXUS/FAST Program can be found by visiting the Trusted Traveler page on the CBP homepage at https://www.cbp.gov/travel/trusted-traveler-programs.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the comprehensive management, control, and protection of our nation’s borders, combining customs, immigration, border security, and agricultural protection at and between official ports of entry.
