Tap water unsafe to drink
Indigenous communities experience water drinking water challenges that stem from a variety of factors such as infrastructure or source water concerns. Water First addresses these challenges through initiatives such as the Drinking Water Internship Program which supports young Indigenous adults to become certified water treatment plant operators, ensuring sustainable access to safe drinking water in Indigenous communities for the long term.
