No Running Water – First Nations in Canada

December 19, 2013 Leave a comment

First Nations communities face poor drinking water and sanitation services. One report documents how more than 40 per cent of the homes on Canadian First Nations without running water are in Manitoba, even though Manitoba has only 15 per cent of the country’s reserve housing stock. Canadian data (2010) from the Indian and Northern Affairs Canada documented that 3,401 households did not have plumbing service.

The Winnipeg Free Press has a series on water and sanitation insecurity among the communities in Manitoba, Canada  –> check out the documentary No Running Water
