The CBSA ensures the security and prosperity of Canada by managing the access of people and goods to and from Canada. Through its various programs and services, the CBSA minimizes risks, by allowing legitimate travellers and goods to move across the border quickly. This allows the business sector to meet market demands.

In 2011, Canada and the United States launched Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness. This Action Plan established a new long-term partnership at the border and looked beyond border operations to further enhance our security and accelerate the legitimate flow of people, goods and services.

The CBSA is one of many departments and agencies working to implement the Beyond the Border Action Plan. The information below refers to CBSA-led initiatives only.
