eManifest is a transformational initiative that is modernizing and improving cross-border commercial processes.  It enhances the Canada Border Services Agency's (CBSA) ability to identify potential threats to Canada, while facilitating the movement of low-risk shipments across the border. With the implementation of eManifest, the CBSA must receive and validate highway carriers' electronic cargo and conveyance data a minimum of one hour before shipments arrive at the border.

Implementation Timelines

eManifest requirements for highway carriers are mandatory.

Beginning January 11, 2016, carriers who do not comply with eManifest requirements may be issued monetary penalties under the CBSA's Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS) and will experience processing delays.
