With the implementation of Phase 2 of the Advance Commercial Information (ACI) program, completed in 2006, all air carriers are required to electronically transmit air cargo and conveyance data to the CBSA four hours prior to arrival in Canada or at time of departure if the flight is less than four hours in duration.
For more information, refer to the ACI – Air Mode section of the CBSA website and Memorandum D3-2-1, Air Pre-arrival and Reporting Requirements.
On June 9, 2013, the CBSA deployed an electronic message function for air carriers operating the conveyance that is transporting the goods, or their authorized service providers, to transmit a Conveyance Arrival Certification Message (CACM) to the CBSA. For more information, visit the ACI – Air Mode CACM Web page.
