Safe water needs skilled people.

The water crisis in Indigenous communities is complex. For some communities, the challenge is infrastructure. For others, it’s source water quality. And for many communities, it’s the lack of skilled water operators and technical support staff.

Water First programs support participants in developing technical skills to go on to employment or further education in water science fields. They build confidence in themselves and a passion for making positive change in their communities. 

Our programs also support sustainable, long-term solutions that increase knowledge and skills — leading to lasting results.

What do lasting results look like?

  • Young people are inspired to pursue further education or employment in water science.
  • Drinking Water Internship graduates are trained to provide safe, clean water for their communities.
  • Communities strengthen technical capacity to manage water resources independently – and thrive.
These results would not be possible without your support – thank you and Miigwetch.
