    Canada Border Services Agency – Speech From the Throne




   There is no role more fundamental than the protection of its citizens.

   That is why the Government established the Department of Public Safety and
    Emergency Preparedness, appointed a National Security Advisor to the Prime
    Minister, established the Cabinet Committee on Security, Public Health and
    Emergencies, and the new Canada Border Services Agency.

    Canada Border Services Agency – Speech From the Throne




   The Government will develop, with its domestic partners, Canada’s first
    national security policy which will serve as a blueprint for effectively securing
    Canada in a way that strengthens the open nature of our society.
   Building on the successes of the Smart Border initiative, the Government will
    engage with the United States to further strengthen North American security
    while facilitating the flow of commerce and travellers.

Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness


                       The creation of the department of PSEP will
                        enable a truly integrated response to all
                        manner of emergencies and threats to our
                        security, whether they be be health-related,
                        natural disasters or from terrorists

                       It brings together, in one place, the core
                        functions of:

                             National security and intelligence

                             Policing and enforcement

                             Corrections and crime prevention

                             Border services

                             Emergency preparedness

Benefits of Integration and Consolidation


               Restructuring of government is not a change
                in commitment; renewed focus simply
                means working smarter to protect public
                health and safety while enabling the efficient
                movement of goods and people across our
                borders

               Inter-agency cooperation will help achieve
                the proper balance between facilitation and
                enforcement

               Harmonizing procedures will reduce
                duplication; resulting increased efficiencies
                will benefit government, business and
                individual Canadians

Priorities for Action



    Maintain current service standards

    Strengthen security by building on our
    partnerships with other key players


    Ensure we are better connected, within
    government and internationally

    Conclusion


   Our approach to creating a more secure
    border to facilitate trade and ensure free
    movement of legitimate travellers and cargo
    will continue to evolve as we harness the
    power of technology, new partnerships and
    new programs to meet emerging challenges

   Much effort is required to address the
    relentless pressures confronting our
    economy and society – from new strategies
    by terrorists to destabilize the western
    world, to threats to our food supply that
    can cripple our economy

    Conclusion


   The CBSA is the logical next step in this
    evolutionary process of strengthening our
    border – continuing work initiated and
    ensuring improved outcomes by providing
