Looking for a better border experience? Download the eDeclaration mobile app to save time upon arrival in Canada. Using eDeclaration is quick, simple and secure.
How to use it:
- Create and store traveller profiles
- Prepare your declaration in advance and generate a quick response (QR) code
- Upon arrival, immediately scan your QR code at a Primary Inspection Kiosk. Do not select a language. For easy QR code scanning, follow the on-screen instructions on the kiosk.

- eDeclaration can only be used at Canadian airports where Primary Inspection Kiosks are available.
- eDeclaration is now available for use at:
- Calgary International Airport (YYC)

Ratings and Reviews
Time for an update
It’s missing questions on cannabis and the verification questions on Ag. It’s kind of useless without a complete question list not from 2009.
Calgary airport not an option
How dumb is that?!! A Canadian international airport is not an option
Think they should have checked before releasing this
So when is it going to work? It’s ALMOST 2021.
