Bonded carriers can bring a load of goods past the port of entry into Canada to an authorized location without customs release. They can do this because they were required to post financial security for $5000 to $25,000 with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
What is Bonded Freight?
In-bond shipments are freight that is not released at the border. The freight is instead moved inland by a bonded carrier to obtain release by CBSA or to simply move through Canada to another country of import.
Trans BC Freightways provides a bond for a truck driver, driver must undergo a strict background check. The company that performs the background check uses the driver’s personal information, including driver's name, address, Social Security number and date of birth, to determine whether the driver has any negative marks on driver's record that may prevent him from being bonded. For instance, a felony on the driver’s record or several traffic tickets may disqualify the driver.

Immigrants, meanwhile, make up about 20 percent (57,000 drivers) of the truck driver population. However, this percentage is smaller than it is for the Canadian workforce. Non-permanent residents make up a very small share of the driver population, at 0.5 percent, compared to the workforce as a whole at 1.1 percent.29 March 2017
