British Columbia - Yukon Bilateral Water Management Agreement

Through the British Columbia - Yukon Bilateral Water Management Agreement, both governments are committing to protecting the aquatic ecosystem health of the basin, as well as the interests of citizens and First Nations.

The signed agreement also recognizes and respects each jurisdiction's laws, regulations, plans, policies, and economic opportunities - and addresses issues of water consumption, flow needs and water quality.

The Liard River Basin is the ninth largest watershed in Canada and the river is the eleventh longest in the country.
