To clarify...

GOES = Global Online Enrollment System. This is the gateway to let you apply to programs such as Global Entry and/or NEXUS.

GLOBAL ENTRY = The program SD1K is referring to. Does not work for travel to/from Canada.

NEXUS = The program that gives you trusted traveler privileges between the U.S. and Canada only.
