As Canada and the United States continue negotiations to modernize the Columbia River Treaty, the Canadian negotiating team, which includes Canada, B.C. and the Ktunaxa, Secwepemc and Syilx Okanagan Nations, is exploring different ways of operating the Canadian Treaty dams to support domestic objectives for ecosystems, Indigenous cultural values, and socio-economic interests, in addition to enabling power generation and protection from damaging floods. These efforts are informing Canadian negotiating positions, strategies and proposals.
 

The Columbia River Treaty Local Governments Committee is leading an initiative to identify social and economic objectives and performance measures that are being integrated into this process.

These webinars will provide details and invite feedback on the process underway, and the interests and performance measures that have been identified to date, including flood risk management, navigation, erosion, agriculture, recreation, tourism, and dust generation.
