Groupe d'étude international de la rivière Souris
The International Souris River Study Board was established to examine and report to the International Joint Commission on matters raised in a reference provided by Canadian and United States
governments on July 5, 2017. The reference is based on the "Plan of Study: For the Review of the Operating Plan Contained in Annex A of the 1989 International Agreement Between the Government of Canada and the Government of the United States of America," which the Commission submitted to governments on June 7, 2013. (View the 1989 agreement)
The Study will review operating rules, improve our understanding of flooding, and recommend potential measures to reduce risks of flooding and other water uses in the Souris River basin. Read the draft Study work plan.
COVID-19 is an ongoing complication affecting current resources and the overall schedule of the Study. Governments have granted the Study an extra six months to submit the final report, which will help the study overcome delays due to the pandemic. The new deadline for final study report submission to the IJC is August 2021.
