More than 20 First Nations across Ontario are taking part in a new project aimed at improving the drinking water standard in their communities. The project is funded by the federal government and administered by the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation. The Indigenous-led corporation says it will provide on-site training to operators of water treatment facilities located in the 22 participating First Nations. Glen Goodman, the corporation’s director of engineering and infrastructure services, says the goal is to break the cycle of First Nations having to wait for critical failure of their water treatment facilities to get the resources they need.
