Alternate Title: Tri Command Vision: NORAD, USNORTHCOM, and Canada COM, Strong and Reliable Partners, Working Together to Protect and Defend our Nations, Peoples, Values and Ways of Life
"Canada and the United States have a long history of defense and security cooperation reflecting our shared interests, geography, international commitments, and common understanding of the threats and vulnerabilities facing out two countries. The creation of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in 1985 and more recently the establishment of United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) and Canada Command (Canada COM) clearly demonstrates our nations' resolve to protect our citizens and territory. As Canada and the United States face the challenges of the 21st Century, NORAD, USNORTHCOM, and Canada COM, will work to enhance our ability to act in a timely and coordinated fashion to defend Canada and the United States. We will work effectively in support of civilian departments and agencies to ensure the safety and security of our citizens. This Tri Command Vision reflects the views of the Commanders NORAD, USNORTHCOM and Canada COM, applies to our Commands and all subordinate elements and, along with other national and Command guidance, serves as a basis for future Command priorities."
