Here is a CBSA program that ensures border security:
ACI program: Canada effectively manages risk cargo entering the country through the Advance Commercial Information (ACI) program. Operators and trucking companies are required by law to provide CBSA officers with pre-arrival information electronically so that they can identify health threats.
Safety and security are connected to commercial cargo before it arrives in the land of Canada. An integral part of the program is the ACI eManifest requiring electronic submission of cargo information in advance with the CBSA.
