About how long does it take between time of seizure and time of notice?
When seizure is enforced, the particulars of the seizure are sent to you in a written notice of action by the CBSA. This can occur months after the actual seizure date, but the notice itself is also dated and this date is used as a start point for timed limits for response or action (appeal) by the person or company listed on the notice.
The CBSA holds all items in storage until all appeals and time limits are exhausted, then they can be processed for destruction if necessary.
