Canada Border Services Agency is temporarily scaling back opening hours at several of what it describes as ``low traffic'' crossings along the border with the United States.

In all, 27 ports are affected; three in British Columbia, two in Alberta, eight in Saskatchewan, six in Manitoba and eight in Quebec.

The western crossings and two in Quebec will open later and close earlier while six other Quebec ports usually open around the clock will operate between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Revised hours take effect at midnight and Canada Border Services says the changes which are related to COVID-19 measures will continue until further notice as all non-essential travel between Canada and the U.S. remains banned.
