WT Rez
The long-standing lack of clean drinking water and wastewater facilities in Indigenous communities has left an indelible stain on Canada's flag. For years successive government have pledged to fix the problem, yet today there are 51 long-term and 34 short-term advisories in Indigenous communities across the country. While 109 long-term advisories have been lifted, 51 remain in 31 communities, and the number of short-term advisories has been climbing in recent months, with short-term advisories regularly recurring in the same communities. Band Councils say government initiatives suffer from a lack of holistic approach, unprofessional consultants or engineers and poor funding for operators and related infrastructure.
Short-Term Advisories
According to Indigenous Services Canada latest report, there are 34 short-term advisories in effect in First Nations communities across Canada, excluding BC; and 9 in BC issued by the First Nation Health Authority (FNHA).
