Water sampling for Water First

The water crisis in Indigenous communities in Canada is unacceptable.

Water First helps to address local water challenges in Indigenous communities through education, training and meaningful collaboration. We work together with First Nations communities to build capacity locally, collaborating to address both drinking water and environmental water concerns. And we have seen the impact. Real long-term solutions that increase knowledge and skills — benefiting both individuals and communities.

There are many ways to contribute to the work of Water First. Whether it’s through a single or monthly donation, planned gift or hosting a fundraiser, we invite you to explore how you can be part of the solution.

Donate now
Make a donation today to support life-changing training and help restore the health of First Nations’ waterways. Or join our monthly giving community and transform lives for as little as $5/month.

Whether you’re bringing people together to honour a loved one, collecting from your fellow book club members, or taking on a personal challenge — you can be a part of helping Indigenous communities access safe, clean water.

We are actively recruiting volunteers to help build our capacity. Let us know if you are interested in joining the team!
