The IJC calls together its international boards twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, to check on progress in areas from coast to coast along the Canada-US border. These boards are made up of volunteers from agencies, academia, nonprofits and the public, who dedicate time and expertise to important issues in their watersheds. They presented at IJC’s Fall Semi-Annual Meeting during the last week of October, at the IJC’s Canadian Section Office in Ottawa, Ontario.
The transboundary region, as it’s called, includes waters shared between the two countries. And sharing is what happens at these gatherings. What follows are highlights from presentations delivered to commissioners by IJC boards.
Updates began with the Red River Board and ended with the Accredited Officers of the St. Mary and Milk Rivers.
See below for examples from the St. Lawrence River Board of Control, Souris River Board of Control, Rainy-Lake of the Woods Watershed Board and Rainy-Namakan Lakes Rule Curves Study Board.
These interactive presentations, culled from full board reports, allow you to zoom in on bullet points of activities completed and future plans.
You can check out board pages for additional information.
There’s also a story map which explains the functions and responsibilities of each board, with links to board websites.
