Canada's Neighboring States in the United States

The international boundary separating Canada and the United States is the longest in the world. This line of demarcation runs from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and is 5,525 miles (8,891 km) long. In its path, it passes by lakes, forests, glaciers, and urban areas.

The international boundary separating Canada and the United States is the longest in the world. This line of demarcation runs from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and is 5,525 miles (8,891 km) long. In its path, it passes by lakes, forests, glaciers, and urban areas. Bordering Canada are thirteen states in the United States, and eight provinces in Canada. In all but absolute necessity, there is a six-foot "no-touching-zone" enforced along the border.

Establishing the Limits

After the American War of Independence ended on September 3, 1783, the Treaty of Paris was signed, establishing the boundary. There were near-armed conflicts between the United States and Canada after the treaty was signed due to disagreements over the demarcation of several locations. Several treaties were signed to settle territorial disputes; these included the Jay Treaty, the Treaty of 1818, the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, and the Oregon Treaty. With the signing of the Treaty of 1908, the present-day boundary lines were established.

The 49th parallel was supposed to be the dividing line between Maine and Washington State, but there were obstacles in the way. Due to the fact that both countries needed access to the Great Lakes, the international border curved southward into northern Ohio. Although drawn to be a straight line, the state line that runs from Minnesota's northeastern corner to Washington's northwesterly corner is not quite so straight in practice. Due to a lack of GPS technology in the early 20th century, surveyors were forced to establish a zigzagging line.  

Border states

From west to east, these thirteen states make up the United States portion of the Canada-US border: Alaska, Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

13. Alaska

The border between Alaska and Canada is the longest of any U.S. state. Located between Yukon and British Columbia, the border stretches for 1,538 miles (2,475 kilometers). U.S. citizens can thank the year 1867 when Russia was outbid by the United States for Alaska. An agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States was signed in 1903 to officially establish the border. Because of the United Kingdom's role in blocking a direct outlet from Yukon to the sea, Canadians saw the agreement as a betrayal and felt it favored the United States. In total, there are five border crossings: two to the Yukon and three to British Columbia from Alaska.

Number Twelve: The District of Columbia

Northern Washington State is completely bordered by British Columbia. Length of the border is 687 kilometers (427 miles) Since it follows the 49th parallel, it is a relatively straight line of demarcation. The border was redrawn to follow the shape of Vancouver Island so as not to divide the island's native population. Seattle and Vancouver are connected by four of the 13 driveable border crossings.

11. Idaho

The length of Idaho's border with British Columbia is 45 miles (72 km). The line runs north of the thin piece of Idaho that separates Washington and Montana. Those traveling by car have only two options for crossing the border: Porthill and Eastport.

Tenth, Montana

Only Montana shares a border with more than two Canadian provinces with the rest of the United States. To the northwest is British Columbia, and to the north are Alberta and Saskatchewan. The entire perimeter is 877 kilometers (545 miles) in length. Where Canada and Montana meet, there are four airports.

Ninth, North Dakota

The northern provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba border North Dakota along a 310-mile (499-kilometer) stretch of shared territory. Roughly 18 different international crossings can be found along the relatively straight borderline. The four major intersections are Portal, Pembina, Neche, and Peace Garden. There is a break in international borders at the International Peace Garden Airport.

Eighth, Minnesota

The provinces of Manitoba and Ontario border the U.S. state of Minnesota for a total of 547 miles (880 km) To the north and northeast of Minnesota is the province of Ontario, and to the northwest is Manitoba. Lake Superior forms a portion of the border between Minnesota and Ontario.

7th: Michigan

The maritime boundary between Michigan and Ontario is 721 miles (1,160 km) long. It's the second-longest frontier between the two nations. Michigan and Canada are not physically connected by land. Both countries have a stake in Lakes Superior and Huron, and the border separates the two. St. Michael's Island, connected by the Blue Water Bridge Clair Tunnel links the Ontario city of Sarnia to the Michigan city of Port Huron. Windsor, Canada, and Detroit, Michigan, United States are connected by the Ambassador Bridge and the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel.

6. Ohio

In terms of length, Ohio's border with Ontario is 235 kilometers (146 miles). The entire border lies inside of Lake Erie. Ferries across the lake are the only means of travel between the two regions. Between Sandusky, Ohio, and Essex County, Ontario, is where you can catch the ferry to Pelee Island.

5. The Keystone State

Pennsylvania's frontier with Canada is the shortest of any state. The 42 nautical mile (68 kilometer) stretch of shared maritime boundary between Canada and Ontario in Lake Erie defines the two countries' respective lake shares. There is no land connection between Pennsylvania and Canada.

A. 4. New York

The border between New York State and Ontario and Quebec is 445 miles (716 km) long. In 1783, the boundary was set by the Treaty of Paris, and in 1842, the Webster-Ashburton Treaty modified it. New York and Ontario are separated in part by the St. Lawrence River. There are four main crossings along the border between Canada and the United States.

3. Vermont

The border between the two states of Vermont and Quebec is 90 miles (145 km) long. While the Treaty of Paris originally defined the border, the Webster-Ashburton Treaty modernized it. Highgate Springs–Saint–Amand–Pillsburg and Derby Line–Stanstead are two of the fifteen border crossings.

The Second New England State

The length of New Hampshire's border with Quebec is 93 kilometers (58 miles). However, the United States has only a single border crossing at the airports. S Where US-3 and Pittsburgh meet. Although it has a large land area, Pittsburgh is home to fewer than 1,000 people.

1. Maine

The 611-mile (983-kilometer) border between Maine and Quebec and New Brunswick makes it the third longest state border with Canada in the United States. Maine and New Brunswick fought over their shared border for two years, from 1838 to 1839. The Webster-Ashburton Treaty, signed between the United Kingdom and the United States in 1842, formally resolved the conflict. The Aroostook Valley Country Club straddles the international boundary between the United States and Canada. There are twenty-four land borders between Maine and Canada.
