IB&M Looks North as Canada Moves to Exclusively Electronic Bonds

Starting in May 2022, the CBSA will be moving to an electronic bond posting system—similar to the existing US system—and the key change will be that all Canadian importers will be required at that time to post their own bond, rather than the common practice of using their customs broker’s bond. In order to prepare for this shift, Intact Insurance Company, in collaboration with IB&M, is pleased to outline how we have and will continue to provide surety bonds to all importers doing business in Canada in 2022 and beyond.   

Intact is fully supportive of the CBSA’s initiative to allow electronic filing of RPP bonds and will continue their role as an industry leader in adopting electronic RPP bonds as soon as the CBSA finalizes the procedure. 

Through this collaboration with Intact, IB&M will now be able to provide the following Canadian bond types through Intact's on-line bond portal:


  • RPP Bond
  • Bonded Air Carrier Bond
  • Non-Resident GST Bond
  • Bonded Warehouse Bond
  • Highway Carrier Bond
  • Bonded Sufferance Warehouse Bond
  • Bonded Freight Forward Carrier Bond
  • Temporary Importation of Goods Bond
  • Bonded Marine Carrier Bond
  • Carnet Bond
