ABOUT

Formerly named the Northern Tribal Border Alliance, the Jay Treaty Border Alliance (JTBA) was formed in 2017 by tribal governments and First Nations communities to collaborate on our efforts to protect our rights preserved in the Jay Treaty, create effective working relationships with the United States Customs and Border Protection and Canada Border Services Agency, and address issues that are unique to the United States-Canadian border.
