Blue Water Bridge Authority Corporation (BWBC)

The Blue Water Bridge Corporation was a Canadian Crown corporation responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Canadian side of the Blue Water Bridge in Point Edward, Ontario. It was established on May 21, 1964 via the Blue Water Bridge Authority Act (Canada), which authorized it to provide highway traffic between Canada and the United States over the Blue Water Bridge. It was granted exclusive rights to levy tolls on westbound traffic from Canada to the United States in order to offset the costs of operation, maintenance, and construction.

On February 1, 2015, the Blue Water Bridge Authority Corporation was amalgamated with St. Mary’s River Bridge Company and Federal Bridge Corporation Limited to form a new corporate entity, Federal Bridge Corporation Limited, which currently owns and maintains the Canadian side of the Blue Water Bridge along with three other international bridges in Canada.


The Blue Water Bridge Authority Corporation Back Office System (BOS) solution provided customer service and account management for the electronic toll processing. The Back Office System was provided by emovis which required customization based on the Blue Water Bridge Authority Corporation business rules to manage operations and provide customer service.
