About this Webinar

The Canada Border Services Agency Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) initiative is a large multi-year project that began in 2016 with the implementation of the Accounts Receivable Ledger (ARL). Once completely implemented, CARM is intended to:

  • Give importers access to their own information
  • Improve consistency in trade rules and decisions
  • Strengthen compliance verification and fraud detection

The deployment of CARM will follow a phased approach with Release 1 launching in May 2021. Release 1 will see the introduction of the CARM Client Portal and its basic functionality. Release 2 will launch in Spring 2022 and will feature all core CARM functionality and processes, including mandatory bond requirements.

This webinar will give you an understanding of Release 1 requirements and highlight major changes for Release 2, coming May 2022.

Who Should Attend?

Individuals or companies who import goods into Canada, and who are interested in an introduction to CARM and in learning about the potential impact to their business.
