The “Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness” Declaration was announced by Prime Minister Harper and President Obama in February 2011.
Four key principles underpinning the Declaration;
Addressing threats early;
Trade facilitation, economic growth and jobs;
Integrated cross-border law enforcement; and
Critical infrastructure and cyber security.
The Border Action Plan follows the Declaration and establishes 32 initiatives that will be implemented over the next few years.
Initiatives will see both Canada and the United States working together within, at, and away from our border to address threats as early as possible, and in a way that supports economic competitiveness, job creation and prosperity.
The CBSA has an interest in 28 different Action Plan initiatives and sub-initiatives.
