This is a good news story.

And we can all use some of that these days.

In collaboration with our First Nations partners, we have a tried and true solution for addressing critical drinking water challenges.

Many First Nations in Canada have identified the need for more young, qualified, and local personnel to support solving water issues independently and for the long term. Yet, every community is different. Nobody understands the evolving challenges and needs of First Nations communities more than the people who live there.

Understanding what community members have to say about their priorities has been, in our experience, the catalyst for building lasting solutions. Solutions based on listening, reciprocal education, and building long-term, trusting relationships.

Water First is excited to share that in 2021 we will be launching the next Drinking Water Internship. Training 12 new interns from the Georgian Bay region to provide critical services and ensure clean drinking water in six First Nations communities. Not only for today, but for the next generation.

With First Nations in the driver’s seat, we’ve seen what we can create together, with your support.
