The Customs and Immigration Union (CIU) is a component of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), which represents Canada’s Front-Line Customs and Immigration Officers. CIU also represents Investigation, Intelligence and Trade Customs Officers, Immigration Inland Enforcement and Hearings Officers, as well as all support staff – all of whom work at the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
The CIU has 23 district Branches across Canada. Every three (3) years, members from each Branch elect their own Branch Executive (President, Vice-Presidents, Secretary and Treasurer). Stewards are also elected at this time. Branch Executives carry out Branch business in accordance with CIU Branch Rules, which are superceded by CIU By-Laws and the PSAC Constitution.

The Customs and Immigration Union is one of the 17 components of the Public Service Alliance of Canada which represents more than 170,000 workers in every province and territory in Canada and in locations around the world. PSAC members work for federal government departments and agencies, Crown Corporations, universities, casinos, community services agencies, Aboriginal communities, airports, and the security sector among others.
