CARM In-Person (Halifax)

NOTE: Registration is now closed.

CSCB will be in Halifax on June 1, 2023 to present an in-person session about the key changes still to be implemented under CARM. This session, held in collaboration with key CBSA CARM Team members, will be a full-day seminar, with the opportunity to ask questions.

Do you have a list of CARM questions? Here are some of ours which will be addressed at the event.

  • Financial Security – what needs to be done to benefit from Release Prior to Payment in Release 2?
  • CARM Client Help Desk – how will it be structured in Release 2 and with how many people?
  • Billing Cycles – what will change and how can you prepare?
  • CAD Elements/adjustments – what are they and what will an adjustment look like?
  • Payments:  What changes in CARM Release 2 and who can make payment inside and outside of the portal?
  • C Types - introducing the CSCB’s new C Type Process map.
  • Reports in CARM – what stays and what goes?
  • Temporary entries – how are they done in CARM Release 2?
  • Pre-CARM/Drawbacks/mass adjustments – what you need to know about the functionality in CARM Release 2
