First going into force on January 1, 1994, and continuing to be refined, the North American Free Trade Agreement is a cooperative economic treaty among Canada, Mexico, and the United States of America. [1] It is specifically an economic agreement, rather than a regional political association; all the signatories are, however, members of the Organization of American States.

It does not supersede, but is to be harmonized with, other international agreements including:

The North American Air Defense Command and other bilateral military and security agreement are outside its scope.
