Water First is one of the top charitable organizations in Canada addressing water challenges in Indigenous communities through education, training and meaningful collaboration..
In numerous Indigenous communities across Canada, tap water is not safe to drink. Water First is Canada’s leading charitable organization dedicated to working with Indigenous communities to resolve local water challenges through education, training, and meaningful collaboration.
Many First Nations in Canada have identified the need for more young, qualified and local personnel to support solving water issues, independently and for the long term. The Water First Internship directly addresses this by training young Indigenous adults for a career in water science. The internship is welcomed by Indigenous communities that view training and skill development as a key part of the solution to drinking water challenges.
