Water First providing the science, Indigenous experts delivering local community knowledge.

We are interested in partnering with like-minded organizations that care about clean drinking water, restoring the health of waterways and inspiring Indigenous youth as the next generation of water stewards in First Nations communities.

We will work closely with your organization to match your interests to our programs and ensure your stakeholders are engaged in a meaningful way. We have great opportunities to partner for events and projects, as well as long-term sustainable investments. We would be interested in exploring options to raise the profile of both our organizations while highlighting the importance of clean water for all Indigenous communities in Canada.

  • We support Water First because it’s that simple — water is first. It is life. We use plants as the base of our products, and like people, they need clean, safe water to grow. We want to help ensure that not only plants but people all have access to safe, clean water. We want to support an organization aiding in the effort to provide every Canadian, especially First Nations, with clean, safe drinking water. We are proud to support Water First and are inspired by the work they are doing!

  • It just makes logical sense. The crisis of clean water is such a large problem and we need to address it from all angles. Water First has a logical and wonderful solution. And they empower Indigenous youth to be part of that solution. We hope our support will create a ripple effect – encouraging others to invest. While we are new partners, we have confidence in Water First. The internship is an important piece of the puzzle to help solve a larger issue.

  • Water First…and always! We believe healthy water creates healthy communities and engaging youth to be agents of change and future community water leaders, is worth every drop!
