As the situation around COVID-19 evolves, work on the Columbia River Treaty continues.
Though the next round of Canada-U.S. negotiations has not yet been scheduled, Canada, B.C. and Columbia Basin Indigenous Nations are collaborating through remote technology to refine Canadian positions and advance ecosystem function work.
The provincial Columbia River Treaty Team is also focused on addressing Treaty-related community interests, finalizing the summary report for last fall’s Columbia Basin community meetings, and exploring new ways of connecting with Basin residents.
Our thanks to all of you who are navigating this challenging time with patience and understanding.
We also deeply appreciate the resolve of our Indigenous Nations and federal government partners to keep moving forward with the Treaty modernization process.
Kathy Eichenberger, Executive Director of the Provincial Columbia River Treaty Team.
