The border has been in existence since the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, which ended the American Revolutionary War. Since then, the border has been a source of both cooperation and conflict between the two countries. The Canada-US border is heavily regulated and monitored by both countries. The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) are responsible for enforcing the laws and regulations that govern the border. This includes the collection of duties and taxes, the enforcement of immigration laws, and the prevention of illegal activities such as smuggling and terrorism. The Canada-US border is also a major economic corridor. It is estimated that over $1.7 trillion in goods and services are exchanged between the two countries each year. This includes everything from agricultural products to manufactured goods. The border also serves as a major transportation route for both countries, with over 400,000 people crossing it each day.

Peace Arch Park
Located at the international boundary between the United States and Canada, Peace Arch Park consists of a State Park on the Washington side, and a Provincial Park on the British Columbia side. Park visitors are free to explore both parks without border formalities. Interstate 5 and BC 99 run through the center of the Park. The centerpiece is the Peace Arch, a 67 feet high memorial that was dedicated in 1921.
