Cross often? Make it simple, use NEXUS.
NEXUS is designed to expedite the border clearance process for low-risk, pre-approved travellers into Canada and the United States.
This is the official Government of Canada Web site for NEXUS applications. The NEXUS fee is $50 (CAN or US). Third party service providers may offer services for submitting your application and may charge an additional processing fee. This additional fee is not part of the official NEXUS application fee and is retained by the third party service provider. Expedited services offered by such parties will not assist in expediting your application process.
Here are the steps for becoming a member, from start to finish. There is a non-refundable processing fee of CAN$50 or US$50 per applicant for a five-year membership card.
