This includes the West Kootenay and Okanagan Shuswap regions of British Columbia. We have a separate page showing traffic alerts for eastern Washington State.

Those pages have more detailed road condition updates, traffic cameras, border wait times, hours of operation and other information for that specific port. The following links will take you to a list of all ports bordering the Province of British Columbia including Washington State, Idaho, and Montana. If you are traveling through another state you should go to our complete list of all of the U.S. and Canadian ports and select the port you will be using.

Before heading to the border, be sure to also review our information on the going through customs, required documentation and prohibited items.
