O BCCLA obteve o CBSA diretrizes sobre acesso a dispositivos digitais. Infelizmente, o PDF parece ser um bitmap em vez de um texto, por isso não posso copiar e colar a partir dele sem o recurso de OCR. No entanto, alguns trechos relevantes:

devices, CBSA's current policy is that such examinations should not be
conducted as a matter of routine; they may only be conducted if there
is a multiplicity of indicators that evidence of contraventions may
be found on the digital device or media.
CBSA officers shall only examine what is stored within the device.
Officers are not to read emails on digital devices and media unless

a traveller for hindering or for obstruction solely for refusing to
provide a password. Though such actions appear to be legally
supported, a restrained approach will be adopted until the matter is
settled in ongoing proceedings.
Você precisaria de um advogado para lhe dar assessoria jurídica, mas a partir de um exame superficial das diretrizes, apareceria que seria improvável que você solicitasse senhas sem um bom motivo, e que você pode se recusar a fornecê-las e não será preso por fazê-lo; no entanto, seus dispositivos podem ser confiscados e você também poderá ser impedido de entrar.
