About The IMTC
The International Mobility & Trade Corridor Program (IMTC) is a U.S. – Canadian coalition of government and business entities that identifies and promotes improvements to mobility and security for the four border crossings that connect Whatcom County, Washington State and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Together, these four crossings are called the Cascade Gateway.
The goals of the IMTC program are to:
- Facilitate a forum for ongoing communication between agencies that affect regional, cross-border transportation, safety, and security.
- Coordinate planning of the Cascade Gateway as a transportation and inspection system rather than as individual border crossings.
- Improve and distribute traffic data and information.
- Identify and pursue improvements to infrastructure, operations, and information technology.
Since 1997, IMTC has served as a model of regional coordination on border issues and has helped assemble over $40 million (USD) from U.S. and Canadian partners to pursue the shared goals listed above.
Over fifty organizations participate regularly in IMTC. IMTC is led by the Whatcom Council of Governments.
IMTC Performance Measures
Performance measurements provide periodic indicators of effectiveness relative to goals and are an important part of managing the IMTC program. As part of an ongoing assessment of the effectiveness of the IMTC cross-border forum, a Performance Review is completed every year to guide the activities of the forum for the following year.
