Right to Clean Water

Help provide a solution to end the water struggles in First Nation communities across Canada. According to the United Nations, the right to water entitles everyone to have access to sufficient, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic use. While Canada’s water quality is ranked among the best in the world, First Nations across the country still struggle to access a safe supply.

Water Warrior

I am Autumn Peltier, global Indigenous water activist and Chief Water commissioner for the Aniishnabek Nation.

Canada is one of the most water rich nations in the world, yet for generations the government has failed to ensure access to clean water for Indigenous communities across Canada.

As Indigenous peoples, First Nations recognize the sacredness of our water, the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of protecting our water from pollution, drought and waste.

Water is the giver of all life and without clean water all life will perish.

Making a Difference

Together with Dreamcatcher, we are:

  • Spreading Awareness about the water crisis
  • Calling our Canadian government to act now
  • Providing temporary water filtration units to locations under boil water advisories

How to Get Involved

Amplify the voice of First Nations by signing our petition and let the Canadian Government know First Nations ‘Right to Water’ can no longer be ignored.

Sign Petition
