OTTAWA, Ont. — The U.S. and Canada yesterday announced the creation of two more Integrated Border Enforcement Teams (IBETs).

One team will the cover Ontario, Michigan, and Minnesota borders, and the other will cover the British Columbia and Washington State borders.

The IBETs are multi-agency teams combining U.S. and Canadian law enforcement, immigration and customs officials and are strategically located to ensure the border remains open to trade and travel, but closed to terrorist elements.

IBETs are currently operating in the following border areas: Pacific; Rocky Mountain; Prairie; Red River; Detroit/Windsor; Niagara; Thousand Islands; St-Lawrence Valley Central; Valleyfield; Champlain; Eastern and Atlantic.
