Alternate Title: Border Infrastructure Investment Plan 3.0: Canada - United States

In 2011, the Prime Minister of Canada and the President of the United States issued the Beyond the Border (BTB) Action Plan which included over 30 initiatives aimed at making the Canada-U.S. border more efficient, safe, and secure. As part of this Action Plan, Canada and the U.S. agreed to pursue a border infrastructure initiative. The first element of the initiative was a commitment to making significant investments in physical infrastructure at key border crossings. The second element was an agreement to enhancing bi-national coordination of border infrastructure investments through the establishment of a bi-national Border Infrastructure Investment Plan (BIIP).The first edition of the BIIP (BIIP 1.0) was released in May 2013 and focused on the Initial Priority border crossings identified in the BTB Action Plan. BIIP 2.0, completed in December 2014, was expanded to include profiles on 25 major road border crossings and projects at 34 medium-sized border crossings. A section on what is now referred to as the Windsor-Detroit Gordie Howe International Bridge project was included. This edition, BIIP 3.0, features updated profiles on the 25 major ports of entry and updated project information on the 34 medium-sized border crossings. A new section on performance measures has been added, as well as cross-border trade and traffic data for both 2013 and 2014.
