Default Record of entries and exits in the computer?

When one leaves Canada either Canadian or visitor, where does the
information that are collected at the airport (Name, DOB, etc.) is being
sent to (e.g. immigration database?)?

Correct me if I am wrong, but from what I understand starting about a year
ago (because of 9/11) Canada records and saves every single entry and exist
of its citizens and visitors.

Cheers

Departures are not recorded in Canada.

Neither, in my experiences, are a lot of entries.

Under legislation passed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Canada
Customs and Revenue Agency has the right to retain for six years detailed
passenger data collected by airlines and travel agents. This included where
and with who people travel, method of ticket payment, contact addresses and
phone numbers, and even requests for special meals or health-related
assistance.

Thanks for the clarification.

That confirms that Canada does record all the exits info as well.

No it doesn't. It confiirms that they have the RIGHT retain exit
information. Whether they do so or not is a completely different
matter. They certainly don't keep accurate records of people leaving
by land borders, although they may well be noting the license plate of
the car
