The International Joint Commission (IJC) was established under the Boundary Waters Treaty to help Canada and the United States prevent and resolve disputes over the waters shared by the two countries. One of the IJC’s responsibilities is to approve projects and set conditions for their operation to protect interests that may be affected in Canada and the United States. Projects approved by the IJC include the Moses-Saunders Dam at Cornwall, Ontario, which regulated the outflow of water from Lake Ontario.
