CBSA Report on Inadmissibility to Canada

13th Sep 2018 Comments Off on CBSA Report on Inadmissibility to Canada

Last updated on May 23rd, 2019

Both Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada as well as the Canada Border Services Agency (“CBSA“) are responsible for ensuring that Canada’s immigration system maintains the security of Canadian society.  One of the ways that both departments do this is by determining that individuals are inadmissible to Canada.

In this post I will review and summarize a CBSA Intelligence Advisory that was obtained through an informal Access to Information Act.  The Intelligence Advisory was produced by the CBSA Intelligence Operations and Analysis Division in September 2016.  It expired in January 2017.  The Intelligence Advisory identified certain countries that at the time posed unique issues for CBSA’s mandate of protecting Canadians.  In reproducing the information below my goal is not to stigmatize members of these communities nor to imply that their citizens are a threat.  Rather, it is to present information as produced by the CBSA for informational purposes only.  Every person deserves to be treated as an individual.  However, it is contrary to common sense to suggest that certain communities don’t have unique circumstances.
