Project tracker

Projected lift date: TBD


Located in northern Manitoba, Shamattawa First Nation is a remote community that is home to 1,425 on reserve and is only accessible by air or winter road.

There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory:

  • A boil water advisory for the Shamattawa Public Water System was set in December 2018 and became long-term in December 2019

The advisory affects approximately 160 homes and 14 community buildings.

The community, with support from Indigenous Services Canada, has completed repairs to the water treatment plant and is working with the Circuit Rider Training Program to resolve operational issues.

A project is nearing completion to expand and upgrade the water treatment plant and water main distribution, which will enable the community to address its long-term water needs. Water sampling and testing is ongoing and once complete, the community should be able to lift the advisory.
