Beyond the Border Action Plan

The Beyond the Border Action Plan is a joint long-term partnership between Canada and the United States (U.S.) which outlines specific initiatives that support a perimeter approach to security. The Action Plan sets out how Canada and the U.S. are working together to address threats at the earliest possible opportunity – within, at, and outside our borders – while facilitating the legitimate movement of people, goods and services into our countries and across our shared border.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is one of many federal departments and agencies working to implement initiatives in support of this transformational vision. CIC is leading the development and implementation of several initiatives that fall within two of the four key areas of cooperation outlined in the Action Plan:

CIC works in collaboration with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) on a number of Beyond the Border initiatives. For information on CBSA-led initiatives under the Action Plan, please visit their website.
