Canada Border Services Agency working to modernize import process

July 22, 2019

The CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project is a multi-year initiative that will transform the collection of tax and duty for goods imported into Canada.

Once fully implemented, CARM will:

  • Simplify the overall importing process
  • Provide a modern interface for importing into Canada
  • Give importers self-service access to their own information
  • Reduce the cost of importing into Canada
  • Improve consistency in trade rules and decisions
  • Strengthen compliance verification and fraud detection
