Columbia River Treaty updates, reports, and community meeting attachment. June 28th, 2020


You are receiving this email because you signed up to receive updates about the Columbia River Treaty. Please let us know if you would like to be removed from this list.

We are pleased to announce that the report summarizing last fall’s Columbia River Treaty community meetings is now available. A pdf version is attached to this email. You can find it online on the Province of B.C.’s Columbia River Treaty website, along with all materials, presentations and videos from the meetings. It has also been posted on Facebook and Twitter. All links are below. Feel free to share it with whomever you think would be interested.

The Province of B.C. hosted meetings in 12 communities throughout the B.C. Columbia Basin last October and November. These meetings served two purposes:

  1. to update communities about the current Canada-U.S. Columbia River Treaty negotiations and projects underway to address community interests; and 
  2. to give residents an opportunity to connect with the Canadian negotiating team, including the Indigenous Nations who became part of the negotiating contingent in 2019.

The report summarizes the presentations, feedback and discussions that took place in Revelstoke, Valemount, Cranbrook, Jaffray, Creston, Golden, Invermere, Genelle, Nelson, Meadow Creek, Nakusp and Fauquier.

We want to make sure the report captures what was said during these sessions. If you attended one of these meetings and notice something missing, or if you have questions or comments about the Treaty in general, please send them to us via:

PO Box 9314 Stn Prov Govt, 

Victoria BC V8W 9N1; or 

  • Message us through the Columbia River Treaty Facebook page.

Our team will hold further engagement sessions, either virtually or in person, when there are new developments from the Treaty negotiations to share. Until then, we will continue to provide updates through the Columbia River Treaty website, Facebook, Twitter, and Newsletter. 

Thank you for your continued interest in the Columbia River Treaty.

All the best,

The B.C. Columbia River Treaty Team
