On July 13, 2010, Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety Canada, announced the "Canada-U.S. Action Plan for Critical Infrastructure" designed to strengthen the safety, security, and resilience of critical infrastructure in the U.S. and Canada through an enhanced cross-border approach.
The Action Plan is part of ongoing cross-border collaboration between the U.S. and Canadian Governments. The Action Plan identifies partnerships, information sharing and risk management as the three key elements. Each area has specific actions that the Department of Homeland Security and Public Safety Canada will take to enhance coordination and cooperation and to better prevent, respond to, and recover from critical infrastructure disruptions.
