Release of CAED Version 20.00

This latest version of CAED, released December 9th 2019, requires Microsoft.NET framework 3.5 and Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010.

If you are running Version 10.00 or earlier, you must download and install these components before installing CAED Version 20.00. For more information on the system requirements for Version 20.00, consult the Installation Guide.

The 2018 version of CAED will expire on January 31, 2020 after which time only the 2020 version will be valid. The 2018 version will be the last update to CAED and will be valid until it is retired in July 2020.

The CAED program will be replaced by a new export reporting system, the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS), by July 2020. The CBSA and Statistics Canada have mutually agreed to retire CAED due to its aging technology. CERS is being designed by the CBSA to meet current export program requirements while providing flexibility to allow for future enhancements. The CBSA will engage industry stakeholders to seek feedback on the system design and roll-out strategy.

Notice: Export declaration submission
Once you have started submitting export declarations using the CERS Portal, please stop submitting export declarations using CAED. Using both systems at the same time increases the risk of encountering complications during the transition period.
