As long as you meet all those requirements, you can apply to be a CBSA agent. Of course, to actually work as an agent you'll also have to pass a number of tests including physical, medical, and psychological testing. This includes passing the mandatory CBSA fitness test.

To make sure this is really something that suits you though, CBSA has also prepared a list of expectations and other traits you should possess if you want to become an agent.
