Ending Water Advisories in Canada's First Nations Communities
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
Access to clean water and sanitation is a recognized human right by the United Nations. The UN stated that "The human right to water is indispensable for leading a life in human dignity. It is a prerequisite for the realization of other human rights".
In Canada, 140 million First Nations people do not have access to safe drinking water. Unequal access to safe drinking water limits an individuals ability to lead a healthy life free of disease and infection. Currently, there are 153 advisories in Canada. This has been a persistent injustice in some communities for decades.
This problem could be solved through investment in water protection, political commitment and increased regulation and monitoring from the government. To help stop this injustice please sign this petition to encourage the federal government to keep their promise to ending long-term drinking water advisories by 2021.
