As said, the CTC inspection is part of the $195 fee paid to RIV at the border. When they fill out the RIV paperwork at the border, you'll have a registration number that you enter on RIV's site after a couple of days. You can then print the inspection form and set it up with CTC. I had my camper registered and plated in 7 days. That was the procedure in 2010, it may have changed.

As far as CSA certification, most dealers list it as an option for about $400. I've asked what that $400 option gets one is willing to answer. All components in the camper are UL/CSA approved...have been for years. I've waived the CSA option both times and not have an issue at the border, at CTC, anywhere. I'm convinced that it's a $400 grab as the campers both sides of the border are identical, but that's just my opinion.
