Citizenship and Immigration Canada

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is conducting a joint consultation with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on business travel between the United States and Canada.

As outlined in the United States-Canada Beyond the Border Action Plan, announced by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barack Obama in December 2011, the joint consultations aim to:

  1. Receive comments on the implementation of commitments included in the Action Plan, and;
  2. Identify and assess new ways to facilitate cross-border business travel in the short and medium terms.

You are invited to provide feedback online by submitting a policy paper/recommendations for the governments’ consideration.

Submissions will be accepted from May 14 to June 15, 2012.

A summary report on the outcomes of the consultations will be available on the DHS and CIC websites later this year.
