About the Conference
The US/Canada Border Conference brings together border security leadership from the U.S. and Canada to provide an educational experience designed to help advance your agency’s mission. The conference is developed by former border security officials who understand the educational needs of today’s border security professionals. View the Advisory Board here.
This two-day event, focused on advancing the Beyond the Border Action Plan, is strategically located in Detroit, Michigan, near several of the busiest shared ports between the United States and Canada.
On February 4, 2011, President Obama and Prime Minister Harper announced the United States-Canada joint declaration, Beyond the Border: A Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness. Beyond the Border articulates a shared approach to security in which both countries work together to address threats within, at, and away from our borders, while expediting lawful trade and travel. The US/Canada Border Conference will bring together local, state, provincial and federal agencies, as well as business organizations, in a central location convenient to both nations, to advance this significant agenda between the United States and Canada.
US/Canada Border Conference is the only major Conference fully addressing the “Beyond the Border” Declaration between the US and Canada aimed at improving economic competitiveness while advancing border security between the two countries. Connect and network with the people from both countries responsible for implementing the Beyond the Border Action Plan, and tap into billions of dollars being invested by the US and Canadian governments for equipment, products and services over the next decade!
