Canada, U.S. meet for latest round of Columbia River Treaty negotiations
Monday, December 13, 2021 2:00 PM
On Dec. 9, 2021, Canada and the U.S. conducted the 11th round of negotiations on modernizing the Columbia River Treaty.
During this round, negotiators discussed ecosystem priorities, post-2024 flood risk management and Canada’s “flexibility” concept.
On behalf of Canada, Canadian Columbia Basin Indigenous Nations made a presentation to the U.S. about ongoing ecosystem studies and analysis, as did U.S. federal agencies and tribal advisors similarly presenting to Canada. B.C. led a discussion about increasing flexibility in the treaty.
This session expanded the conversation around each country’s key interests, building on proposals for a modernized agreement that were tabled by Canada and the U.S. during the two rounds of talks in 2020.
The next round of negotiations will take place on Jan. 10, 2022.
