Canada Invests $336 Million on First Nation Water Systems

Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Canada’s federal government said it will spend C$330.8 million ($336 million) at more than 50 aboriginal communities over two years to improve water and wastewater systems on First Nation reservations.

“Our government is committed to addressing water and wastewater issues on reserves to ensure that First Nations communities have access to safe drinking water,” Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development John Duncan said in a Jan. 13 statement.

Communities to see the water system improvements on local lands include Canoe Lake, Saskatchewan; Tallcree First Nation, Alberta; and Nazko First Nation in British Columbia. Canada has about 1.2 million natives.
