Statement by the CBSA President on Redeployment of Staff 2018-05-23

The President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), John Ossowski, made the following statement in response to recent media stories about redeployment of CBSA staff to address irregular migration.
 
In support of our mandate, we invest significant effort annually to plan and prepare for various peak periods, including the summer travel season. Significant analysis is conducted to inform us on resources that will be required to address projected trends and patterns to ensure alignment of resources to service demand.
 
An article falsely states that "…border and customs agents are being pulled from the Greater Toronto Area..." The reality is that we issued a call letter to identify officers across the country, including the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), to solicit interest from officers who would be mobile and ready to assist our operations in Lacolle, and if needed, elsewhere in the country to address increases in volumes – this is a key part of maintaining a dynamic and flexible workforce that can readily respond to emerging issues.
 
As part of our planning, each of our operational regions have initiated the establishment of what we term a “surge capacity workforce” that can be called upon in the event of operational requirements. These officers are typically redeployed for short periods of time on an as-needed basis.
 
Some of our surge capacity requirements may include administrative staff or non-frontline staff. As of today, [for example] the CBSA will be redeploying two non-frontline staff from the GTA to Montreal for a 4-week period.
