CANUSCENT: Annex III: A Plan for Response to Oil and Hazardous Material Spills Along the Inland Border and Connecting Channels between Ontario, Canada and Michigan, Minnesota, and New York, United States   [open pdf - 802KB]

The Canada-United States Joint Inland Pollution Contingency Plan (the Inland Plan) provides for an international coordination mechanism to ensure appropriate and effective cooperative preparedness, reporting, and response measures between Canada and the United States when a chemical accident occurs along the shared inland boundaries. In addition, the Plan provides for co-operative measures for dealing with accidental and unauthorized releases of pollutants that cause or may cause damage to the environment along the shared inland border and that may constitute a threat to public health, property, or welfare. The Inland Plan, signed on July 25, 1994 by the Minister for the Department of Environment for Canada and the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency for the United States of America, calls for the development of five geographic annexes, which cover the full international boundary. CANUSCENT (Annex III), covers the shared inland border between the Province of Ontario and the States of Minnesota, Michigan and New York.
