  • 1 min read

Waabnoong Bemjiwang Association of First Nations (WBAFN) and Water First are proud to launch the Drinking Water Internship Program in member communities. This program trains young Indigenous adults to become certified water treatment plant operators.

WBAFN has invested $50,100 toward the Internship Program, along with staff and community resources. 

Together, WBAFN and Water First are committed to addressing local needs for more young and qualified personnel in the water management field to help ensure safe drinking water in communities.

Not only for today, but for future generations.
