The Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) will be decommissioned on September 30, 2020. The CAED non-technical support helpdesk has officially ceased operations.

About Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED)

The CAED program is being fully replaced by a new export reporting system, the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS), by September 30, 2020. The CBSA and Statistics Canada have mutually agreed to retire CAED due to its aging technology. CERS has been designed by the CBSA to meet current export program requirements while providing flexibility to allow for future enhancements.

CERS is a web-based solution that enables exporters to report their export goods. It includes the same data requirements as CAED and will be designed to accept summary reporting of eligible goods. The CBSA has commenced onboarding activities with current CAED users and is accepting new registrations. We encourage you to visit the CBSA website to learn more about the new export reporting system.

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.
