Beyond the Border Action Plan
Share |


In 2011, the Canadian and U.S. governments agreed to strengthen trade relations between our two countries, under the Beyond The Border Action Plan.  The Action Plan includes commitments to improve cross border mobility.  

CERC, in collaboration with several leading business organizations in both Canada and the U.S. has developed a series of constructive recommendations that will address many of the challenges employees encounter at ports of entry.  We are pleased that several of these proposals have been implemented.
