5. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is making a significant change to the “place of exit” field in the 2011 version of CAED. All CBSA offices which are not direct points of exit will be eliminated from the drop down menu of that field. Only the places of exit where goods may physically leave Canada directly via the rail, marine, air or highway modes of transportation will continue to be listed in the “place of exit” field in the 2011 version of CAED. Exporters using the CAED software to report their exports must ensure they select the place of exit from which their goods will ultimately leave Canadian soil.
