Hello all,

Why is there no border control, if you leave Canada and fly e.g. to Europe?
What do you want to control when leaving Canada? Your question makes no sense..

Rather than spending millions on investigating hundreds of thousands of citizenship/PR card renewal applications for residency misrepresentation through RQ (and have honest applicants wait for years), they would've done much better to exert an exit control (again, at least on non-citizens) so that their physical presence can be unambiguously verified.

...and for those who instead 'slipped' across the US border and hopped a flight out from there?....

They're already doing it. The CBP and the CBSA have already exchanged all entry information for non-US/Canadian citizens across all land borders since June 30 last year. They'll be doing it for everybody (including the Americans and the Canadians) as well starting this year.
