Two in five First Nations are under a boil water advisory.

In numerous First Nation communities across Canada, the tap water is not safe to drink.

Many First Nations in Canada have identified the need for certified personnel to operate and maintain their drinking water treatment systems. Water First’s mission reflects our commitment to listening to community partners.

Our mission is to help address local water challenges in First Nations communities through education, training and meaningful collaboration.

Through a four-part video series, we are highlighting the FNAC in our member’s own words about our relationships.
