Software demonstration

The Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) application was jointly developed by Statistics Canada and the Canada Border Services Agency.

The 2020 version of CAED will be available and ready for download on December 9, 2019.

The CAED program will be replaced by a new export reporting system, the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS), by July 2020. The Canada Border Services Agency (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.

This Windows application features drop-down menus, dialog boxes that remember input, and keyword searches based on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) at the 8-digit level.

This application enables you to complete an export declaration, print it, and then submit it online, either by FTP or in an encrypted email attachment.

This free application is available to exporters and their agents (or service providers). A current Business Number (company name and address) that is registered for Exporting with the Canada Revenue Agency is all that is needed to apply for the CAED software.
