Canada Border Services Agency

Strategic Outcome

Legitimate people and goods move freely and lawfully across the border.

Program Activity Descriptions

Conventional Border Program

The Conventional Border Program develops, administers and overseas the policies, regulations, procedures, alliances and working partnerships necessary to maintain border control while allowing for the free movement of legitimate people and goods (including plants and animals) into and out of Canada. This program ensures that the entry of low-risk people and goods is expedited while unknown and high-risk people and goods are properly assessed. The Conventional Border Program benefits the Canadian economy by contributing to strong business and tourism sectors. The program promotes compliance with border legislation and minimizes unnecessary delays at the border. The program also contributes to creating a stronger and more prosperous North America by allowing goods and people to move freely across the border.

Trade Program

The Trade Program ensures that the Canadian economy and the business community gain maximum benefits from the administration of international and regional trade agreements and domestic legislation governing trade in commercial goods.

In this context, the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) is responsible for developing and administering rules, policies, programs and activities that govern the trade-related aspects (origin, valuation, anti-dumping and countervailing measures, tariff and trade incentives) of the movement of goods into Canada. Guided by these rules, policies and programs, importers must account for imported goods and indicate what the imported goods are (tariff), where they come from (origin), how much they are worth (valuation), what duties and taxes are payable, if and how much anti-dumping and countervailing duties are payable, and whether duties can be relieved, remitted or deferred (tariff and trade incentives). Based on risk, the CBSA ensures importer compliance with trade requirements by conducting verification activities to ensure the proper collection of duties and taxes as set by Parliament, by upholding the integrity of trade agreements, by providing protection to Canadian industries and by ensuring the integrity of trade data.

Facilitated Border Program

The Facilitated Border Program develops, administers and oversees program requirements, policies, regulations and standards necessary to expedite the international border passage of pre-approved, low-risk people, importers, carriers and goods. In providing a faster and more efficient means of crossing the border in land, air and marine modes, the Facilitated Border Program reduces border congestion and wait times while managing risk. It contributes to the strengthening of the Canadian economy through the business and tourism sectors. Periodic examinations of people and goods are conducted to ensure ongoing compliance.

Recourse Program

The Recourse Program provides the business community and individuals with an accessible redress process that ensures a fair and impartial review of decisions and actions taken in support of border services legislation. Through the fair, transparent and timely review of Trade Program decisions and enforcement-related actions, the Recourse Program ensures that the actions taken by CBSA officials accurately reflect CBSA policies, guidelines and legislation and contribute to the security, protection and economic prosperity of Canada. In addition, the Recourse Program manages any further appeals of recourse decisions to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal and the courts. This program is also responsible for the management of Canadian Human Rights Commission cases involving allegations of discrimination from the public regarding the services provided by the CBSA.

Strategic Outcome

Canada's population is safe and secure from border-related risks.

Program Activity Descriptions

Enforcement Program

The Enforcement Program ensures the safety and security of Canada's population. Working closely with the Risk Assessment Program, the Enforcement Program ensures that appropriate enforcement actions are taken against people and goods that are non-compliant with border-related legislation and regulations. At ports of entry, these actions include the identification, detention and reporting of permanent residents or foreign nationals who are inadmissible under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act . Border services officers at ports of entry also detain, seize and impose administrative monetary penalties on goods that are non-compliant with the Customs Act or other Canadian legislation and regulations. At inland enforcement offices, CBSA officials identify, investigate and report those suspected of being inadmissible to Canada, and locate and remove those inadmissible persons who do not have a legal right to remain in Canada. This activity is essential to the integrity of Canada's immigration and refugee programs. In addition, CBSA officials at HQ and in the regions carry out criminal investigations of offences against border-related legislation.

Risk Assessment Program

The Risk Assessment Program "pushes the border out" by seeking to identify high-risk people and goods as early as possible before their arrival at Canada's border. The program is an essential element in preserving the safety and security of Canada's population. The program assesses information from a wide range of sources to support decisions on visa applicants at overseas missions. CBSA officials also assist local authorities in identifying document fraud, screening irregular migrants and cargo at ports of embarkation and, where possible, preventing their departure. At the National Risk Assessment Centre and in regional targeting units, the CBSA uses advance passenger and cargo information from carriers, importers, exporters and other partners to identify high-risk people and goods before their arrival. Once identified, high-risk people or goods are flagged for closer examination and possible enforcement action at a Canadian port of entry. In this manner, the Risk Assessment Program and the Enforcement Program work closely together to preserve the security of Canada's border.

The following program activity supports all strategic outcomes within this organization.

Security Screening Program

The Security Screening program is one of the main responsibilities of CSIS and among its most visible functions. The goals of the Security Screening program are to prevent non-Canadians who pose security concerns or risks from entering or receiving permanent residence in Canada and to prevent anyone of concern from gaining access to sensitive government assets, locations or information. Through its foreign offices in Canadian missions abroad, CSIS performs in-depth examinations of applicants and prospective immigrants whose backgrounds present security concerns. CSIS also provides security assessments on behalf of all federal government departments and agencies (except the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)) as part of the Government Security Policy (GSP). Security Assessments fall into the following program activities: Government Screening, Sensitive Sites Screening, Foreign Screening, Immigration and Citizenship Screening, and Refugee Screening.

Program Activity Descriptions

Independent and impartial case review

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police External Review Committee (ERC) can dispose of matters referred to the ERC by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) either on the basis of the material in the record or following a hearing. In conducting its review of matters referred to it, the ERC attempts to achieve timeliness and quality in its recommendations, and a balance amongst the many complex and different interests involved. It strives to ensure that the principles of administrative and labour law are respected and the remedial approach indicated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act is followed. In each case, the ERC must consider the public interest and ensure that members of the RCMP are treated in a fair and equitable manner.

Outreach and information dissemination

The ERC ensures that its findings and recommendations in each case are clearly explained for the parties and the RCMP Commissioner. Summaries of the findings and recommendations in each case, as well as articles of interest on the role of the ERC, relevant legal principles and information on related issues, are distributed widely. Communication and outreach tools include : a quarterly publication (Communiqué), including the most recent case summaries, updates, and legal principles; a website with timely inclusion of publications and case summaries; the annual report and other government accountability documents; and presentations, meetings, training and other outreach activities.
