More than a century of cooperation protecting shared waters

Public Consultations

You can have a say in how the rivers and lakes along the border of Canada and the United States are used.

Whenever the International Joint Commission (IJC) is asked to make a decision about a dam or other structure in a river or a lake, it asks for views from the public. The IJC also holds public meetings every three years to discuss progress in cleaning up the Great Lakes, and solicits comments from the public on biennial progress reports on the Canada-United States Air Quality Agreement.
