Canada and the US to share personal departure records

When the Canadian immigration authorities process visitor visas, immigration, and citizenship applications, they often require applicants to provide records of entry and exit in the past few years as an important indicator for reviewing cases. The border agencies of Canada and the United States have established an intelligence exchange system to collect personal entry and exit data records more systematically in the future. This means that when processing applications in the future, officials of the Canadian Department of Immigration can check these entry and exit records to determine when the applicant entered and exited Canada. This information is especially important for processing visitor visas, permanent resident status, refugee applications, citizenship applications, and inspection of passport flows.
