About Us

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. 

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. Learn more about the 2011 Souris River flood
