About CBSA’s CARM and Release Phases

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) continues to accelerate its evolution and modernization through its CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) initiative; completely transforming the agency’s import playbook from trade compliance to risk and information management.

On May 25th, 2021, Release 1 launched the CARM Client Portal, facilitating accounting and revenue management processes with the CBSA. All functionalities of the portal will be available as of Release 2 (R2) in 2024.
