    I believe the professor is asking you to navigate the website and find the area that provides the role and responsibilities of Canada's border detail and then to answer the question. Yes I would think it is in detail and can be done in less than one half of a page. Believe you will find what you need if you click on the link you attached and then click on "abouth the CBSA" and then on "what we do". Good luck!

    Just scan through the 25 pages and get a general concept of what you think the role and responsibilities are, then send it to him in a small paragraph form. Look for words that you would associate with roles and responsibilities, then focus on that paragraph/sentence.

    That's easy: CBSA is the Canadian equivalent of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Their role is to control the entrance of people, goods, and currency into Canada. They are responsible for protecting the Canadian people against individuals who may try to come into the country illegally and any harmful things they may try to bring in like illegal weapons or bombs, they assess duties and tariffs on imported goods, they are authorized to seize goods and conveyances (cars, trucks, etc.) that are brought into the country illegally, and they are allowed to detain and deport individuals who break Canadian Customs laws. That's the basics -- the website can give you more of the particulars.

    Source(s): I work for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Detroit, and we deal with CBSA on a regular basis.
