The U.S. and Canada have developed a joint strategy that calls for bilateral collaboration and a shared approach to manage security risks to power grid infrastructure in North America.

The Joint United States-Canada Electric Grid Security and Resilience Strategy outlines  outlines approaches to protect the current electric grid, manage contingencies through modernization of response and recovery systems and build a new electric grid that would be responsive to future threats, hazards and vulnerabilities, the White House said Monday.

Both countries plan to implement the strategy in accordance with respective U.S. and Canadian action plans that detail the steps and milestones toward meeting the strategy’s goals.
