The CANadian Rare isotope facility with Electron Beam ion source (CANREB) will aid in the delivery of pure, intense rare isotope beams (RIBs) from ISAC and ARIEL to further the nuclear science research programs at TRIUMF. CANREB will include a high resolution magnetic spectrometer (HRS) for beam purification, and a charge breeding system consisting of an ion beam cooler and buncher (BCB), a pulsed drift tube (PDT), an electron beam ion source (EBIS), and a Nier-type magnetic spectrometer to charge breed the RIB for post-acceleration. The BCB will accept continuous RIB beam and efficiently deliver bunched beam to the EBIS with intensities of up to 10$^{7}$ ions per bunch, with bunch frequencies of up to 100 Hz. The PDT will be used to match the energy of the bunched beam from the BCB to that of the EBIS acceptance in the range of 10-14 keV. The EBIS, developed at MPIK in Heidelberg, has been delivered to TRIUMF, and installation of CANREB equipment is underway. Design features of the BCB and PDT will be described, and a summary of installation and testing progress will be given.
