Description

Document Purpose: Both CSIS and CBSA report to the Minister of Public Safety and fall under the portfolio of the Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness (Public Safety). This ‘Framework MOU’ between CSIS and the CBSA sets the terms and conditions as well as the general principles of the administration and management of arrangement between the two organizations, for the purposes of conducting national security investigations, sharing information, and providing mutual assistance. This ‘Framework MOU’ also authorizes CSIS to enter into more specific arrangements with CBSA, as required, without the necessity to seek the Minister of Public Safety’s approval each time.
Document Synopsis: The MOU points out that the relationship between the CBSA and CSIS is vital to ensuring the effective administration of the CBSA Act and the CSIS Act; the administration and enforcement of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Customs Act; and maintaining the security of Canada (preamble). The memo outlines the separate responsibilities of both CBSA and CSIS and the scope of their cooperation (section 1, section 3). The MOU establishes Joint Management Teams that consist of executive level members from both agencies to address issues of mutual interest (section 4). The MOU can be amended at any time upon mutual consent of both CBSA and CSIS (section 7). Although the MOU states that funding might be necessary to fully implement the MOU, it does not, in and of itself impose financial responsibilities on either agency (section 6).
