The Canada Border Services Agency has announced that as of June 30, 2020, it will no longer accept the paper B13A export declaration form and exporters (or their customs service providers) will instead be required to report exports electronically. There will be two electronic reporting methods available: the Canadian Export Reporting System, which will become operational on March 16, 2020, and replace the Canadian Automated Export Declaration system; and the G7 Export Reporting Electronic Data Interchange, which is already in existence and can be used now.

The CBSA notes that once this change is made, if the goods being exported require a permit, the paper copy of the electronic export declaration submission and the permit issued by the other government department must be presented (a) at the place specified in the permit authorizing the exportation or (b) if no place is specified, at the CBSA export reporting office closest to the place of exit of the goods from Canada.
