The International Mobility & Trade Corridor Project (IMTC) is a highly unique cross-border planning and policy coalition. It describes itself to be a, “U.S. - Canadian coalition of government and business entities that identifies and promotes improvements to mobility and security for the four border crossings between Whatcom County, Washington State and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.” (www.wcog.org/Border/About-IMTC/58.aspx, retrieved 10 June 2009).
Purpose of the study: The major purpose of this study was to document the role, successes, and obstacles that the IMTC faces along with evaluating its voluntary nature, impact on cross border collaboration & communication, and speculate on its future function. Second, it is to share this information with similar regions along the border that might benefit from organizing comparable micro-level cross-border voluntary projects.
