The term deep integration is defined as "the dismantling of the border between Canada and the United States." [1] Deep integration "will affect everything – the economy, social structures, social programs, resources and the environment. ... It is the formation of a new North America that effectively erases the border between Canada and the United States in the interest of trade north of the border and security concerns south of the border," The Council of Canadians states.

  • Deep Integration
