The Canadian government is undergoing a new initiative in the collection of duties and taxes through the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project.

CARM represents a significant transformation in the way CBSA assesses and collects duties on imported goods and services entering Canada.

  • Applicable to various organizations, CARM includes those that:
  • Import commercial goods on an infrequent basis, perhaps just once a year.
  • Utilize a customs broker for importing commercial goods.
  • Import commercial goods through a courier service.
  • Import goods for subsequent sale.
  • Import goods for any commercial, industrial, occupational, institutional, or similar purpose.

This includes businesses located outside of Canada that ship goods to customers in the country and are responsible for customs clearance and other import-related requirements. These entities, known as Non-Resident Importers (NRIs), are required to register on the CARM Client Portal.

If you or your supplier falls under the category of an NRI, you are invited to participate in our webinar on Registering on the CARM Client Portal for Non-Resident Importers.


Webinar Registration Options (both in English):

Thursday, February 1st, 2024 – Register

11:00 am to 12:00 pm EST


Thursday, February 8th, 2024 – Register

8:00 am to 9:00 am EST

CBSA is also hosting various webinar sessions, including those tailored for small to medium-sized businesses registering on the CARM portal, as well as Open Mic sessions for all trade chain partners.
