Water Statistics for Indigenous Communities
Saturday: Water Statistics for Indigenous Communities

Drinking water advisories alert communities when their water is not safe to drink. In Canada, these advisories are highly concentrated in First Nation communities. The water supplied to many First Nation communities on reserves is contaminated and hard to access. Nearly 850 million people worldwide still lack access to clean drinking water.
