The Province will be hosting a Virtual Town Hall on the Columbia River Treaty. The renegotiation of the Canada – US Columbia River Treaty is one of the most important initiatives underway in Kootenay Columbia.
People from across the Columbia Basin and beyond will have a chance to hear from, and ask questions to, Canadian negotiators, Indigenous Nations, local government representatives and others involved in current efforts to modernize the transboundary Treaty.
Topics will not only include the current Canada-U.S. negotiations, but also ongoing Indigenous Nations-led ecosystem studies, Local Governments’ Committee updated recommendations and work underway domestically to address interests related to the Treaty.
The session will be held by Zoom, with an option to phone in for those who are not able to connect by web. A recording will be available afterwards.
