The Government of Canada and the Government of the United States of America, hereinafter referred to as "the Parties", Convinced that transboundary air pollution can cause significant harm to natural resources of vital environmental, cultural and economic importance, and to human health.

Summary. In accordance with the U.S.-Canada Memorandum of Intent on Transboundary Air Pollution, Work Group 2 and its Modeling Subgroup are charged with describing the transport and transformation of air pollutants from their source regions to final deposition, especially wet sulfur deposition in sensitive ecological regions.

United States and Canada. Acid rain is a transboundary pollution problem that cannot be addressed adequately by the efforts of one state or province alone.

Thus, the acid rain problem must be solved by the joint efforts of the United States and Canada. Existing United States law. Although most air pollution problems are caused by local or regional sources of emissions, air pollution does not stop at national borders. Transboundary flows of pollutants occur between the United States and our closest neighbors, Mexico and Canada, as well as between North America, other continents, and sources in the global commons such as international shipping and.

The Canada-United States Air Quality Agreement was signed by Canada and the United States into address transboundary air pollution leading to acid rain.

Both countries agreed to reduce emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO 2) and nitrogen oxides (NO x), the primary precursors to acid rain, and to work together on acid rain related scientific and technical cooperation. The regulatory character of this action, and the attempt by the United States to directly regulate a foreign entity under a "strict liability" theory of accountability, demonstrates a drastic break in the character of modern transboundary pollution disputes.'10 ‘Part Two examines the significance and potential relevance of the Trail Smelter.

Fruitful negotiations with the United States led initially to joint scientific work and studies. A Memorandum of Intent between Canada and the United States concerning Transboundary Air Pollution was signed in It led to the Canada-United States Air Quality Agreement.

The Agreement included specific commitments by both countries to. the Memorandum of Intent (MOI) concerning transboundary air pollution on August 5, MOI emphasized the urgent problem of acid rain and the need for cooperative action and expressed a commitment to develop a bilateral agreement to combat transboundary air pollution.

Under the Air Quality Agreement, Canada and the United States have committed to addressing transboundary air pollution. To date, work under the Agreement has focused on acid rain issues. The two governments have made significant reductions in emissions of the two major acid rain pollutants — sulphur dioxide (SO 2) and nitrogen oxides (NO x).

Critical loads were first discussed by Canada and the United States during the early s in the Memorandum of Intent on Transboundary Air Pollution—the earliest bilateral acid rain assessment.

A legacy of this assessment is the specification of critical. The Air Quality Agreement is an environmental treaty between Canada and the United States.

It was signed on 13 March by Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney and American President George H. Bush and entered into force immediately. It was popularly referred to during its negotiations as the "Acid Rain Treaty", especially in ations began in when Mulroney first.
