Narrator: The Canada Border Services Agency's involvement in missing children cases goes beyond recovering missing children or being vigilant when children cross the border. The Agency also assists other law enforcement agencies with missing children cases, and border services officers at ports of entry assist with the repatriation of Canadian nationals brought home from abroad. Every day, border services officers are on alert for missing children at ports of entry in all modes of travel across the country, and worldwide.
