A Comparative Analysis of Border Security Strategies Across Canadian Regions: Atlantic Canada
Kevin Quigley and Stephen Williams | BIG Research Reports | #83
This paper provides an overview of border security in Atlantic Canada, also known as “The Maritimes”. It examines the historical structure of the region, and the regional approaches to security and governance. The area has long relied on trade and shipping, as well as the associated security employment as economic drivers. Through a review of existing literature, and existing interviews with practitioners in the field, we contrast the increasing integration of marine security forces, both nationally and internationally, with their relationships with seaports where the majority of international
trade occurs in the region.
