CARM is coming…don’t worry, we have you covered.

WHAT IS CARM?

The CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management project, better known as CARM, is a multi-year initiative that will modernize and streamline the process of importing commercial goods into Canada. It will transform the collection of duties and taxes for imported goods and improve consistency in applying trade rules and decisions. The shipment release process will not change; however, importers will be required to post their own financial security in the form of a surety bond, or post a cash deposit in the CARM Client Portal with CBSA and be responsible for paying duties and taxes directly with CBSA.
