The International Souris River Study Board was established to examine and report to the International Joint Commission on matters raised by the Governments of Canada and the United States in a reference provided to the Commission on July 5, 2017.
The Commission submitted to the governments a "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" on June 7, 2013.
The 2017 reference asks the Commission to "evaluate and make recommendations regarding the Operating Plan contained in Annex A to the 1989 Agreement, and additional flood protection measures and beneficial water supply measures." Accordingly, the Commission established the Study Board to aid it in fulfilling the terms of this reference.
