Default Which boarder crossing to take

We live north of Ottawa. Is it better to go to Buffalo or Ogdensburg to get a new work permit? We should have the new LMO in, in the next week or so and need to do a U turn to obtain my husbands new work permit and I'll get an SOWP at the same time.
Does it really matter which one you go to or is one preferred over the other. My husband is an over cautious kinda a guy for these kinda things and wants to be on the safe side.

Well apart from moving to another country and starting again! Lol

Buffalo is a really bad idea, in my opinion. It is a very long drive from where you are living, and there is no reason to go there.

I think you can go to any of the border crossings which have a full time Canadian immigration processing function. Thousand islands (about 1.5 hours from Ottawa) should be good. I suspect Cornwall is also good.

I would bypass Cornwall if at all possible.

I second that. Tried to extend my work permit there back in November (had all the correct paperwork) and they told me that as my work permit was still valid, I must apply to Vegreville. Fair enough.

Plus they are undergoing renovations (or were in November), so I think they want to get people through as quick as possible - the temporary facilities aren't condusive to long queues.

Buffallo seems a bit far to go, how about Hill Island?
