Hi Penny

Of course these birds are a great concern.

The following report has sound guidelines for assessing the risks of introduced 
(including self-introduced?) species.:

Bomford, M. (2003) Risk Assessment for the Import and Keeping of Exotic 
Vertebrates in Australia. Bureau of Rural Sciences, Canberra.  ISBN 

Unfortunately it marks Canada Goose as having no overseas pest status, which I 
think would come as a surprise to people in the UK and NZ.

Did our national bird organisations pick it up?  I'm sorry I didn't but I would 
like them to tell the list and/or their members what they propose to do about 
these sightings.
