Launched in November 2018, the CBSA RA is still in its infancy. Its growth as a valuable resource for its members will come through their efforts and participation in the Association. The CBSA RA therefore continues to look for help from its members...

Can you spare some time and some of your knowledge to help the RA and your fellow members? Tasks can be done alone or working in groups, based on member response and needs.

For a small investment of your time you can choose when and how to help the RA and your fellow members, on your own schedule and from the comfort and convenience of your own home. Please consider helping out today!
