Welcome to US/Canada Border Conference!
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.
As a conference attendee you are sure to benefit from government and industry leaders who are sharing their knowledge and thoughts at a conference designed to enlighten, inform and educate. During the conference, attendees, sponsors and speakers will have ample time to network during sessions breaks, the opening day networking reception, at luncheons, and during special events.
