On January 26, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) joined other customs agencies around the world in marking International Customs Day. This year’s international theme is “nurturing the next generation by promoting a culture of knowledge-sharing and professional pride in customs”, one that resonates well with the CBSA in their 20th anniversary year.

Key CBSA enforcement highlights, between January 1 and December 31, 2022, include keeping over 1,100 firearms and 24,400 prohibited weapons off our streets, intercepting over 409,714 kg of tobacco preventing revenue evasion, 46,907 seizures, removing 41,475.5 kg of illegal drugs, including 3,084 kg of Cocaine, 398 kg of Heroin, and 4 kg Fentanyl.
