The Canada Border Services Agency was established in 2003 and is charged with
ensuring "Canada's security and prosperity by managing the access of people and
goods to and from Canada" (http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/agency-agence/charter-charte-eng.html)/.
The CBSA is Canada's all-in-one border security, customs, and immigration
According to the CBSA website, armorial bearings were granted by the Chief Herald of Canada in December 2008. Graphics, descriptions, blazons, and meanings can be found at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/agency-agence/herald-armoiries-eng.html.
The flag has a dark blue field with the Canadian flag in the canton,
fimbriated from the blue field with gold. In the fly is the CBSA heraldic badge.
