Released today, the first annual Beyond the Border Action Plan Implementation Report and the Canada-U.S. Regulatory Cooperation Council Joint Action Plan Progress Report demonstrate real and concrete progress on two major initiatives of Canada’s Economic Action Plan. Results include improved joint border management, practical steps to align specific regulatory practices, modernization of common infrastructure and initial steps to align trade programs, representing the beginning of a long-term enhanced Canada-U.S. partnership on security and economic prosperity.
Announced in December 2011, the Beyond the Border Action Plan outlines joint priorities to strengthen shared security and improve the legitimate flow of people, goods and services across our borders.
The Canada-U.S. Regulatory Cooperation Council works to better align regulatory approaches to protect health, safety and the environment while supporting growth, investment and innovation.
