Clean water for all

Imagine not being able to turn on the tap to get a glass of clean drinking water. Or having to worry every time you bathe your children that the water could make them sick or give them a rash. Imagine having to boil water just to do the dishes.

This is the reality for more than 100 First Nations in Canada. Many communities have faced these conditions for years, or even decades.

The federal government promised to end drinking water advisories in First Nations within five years of being elected. In response, a coalition of organizations led by the David Suzuki Foundation has begun to monitor federal progress toward ensuring clean water. We started with First Nations in Ontario, the province with the highest number of advisories.

Our research shows the government is not on track to fulfil its commitment.

Let’s stand together to ensure that the federal government lives up to its promise to end the drinking water crisis in First Nations communities by 2020.

Everyone in Canada has a right to clean drinking water.

We can show the federal government that the issue of unsafe drinking water in First Nations isn’t just an Indigenous issue — it’s everyone’s issue.
