Project tracker

Projected lift date: June 2024


Home to 751 people on reserve, Chippewas of Nawash First Nation, in Ontario, is building a new water treatment plant and upgrading the current water distribution system with funding from Indigenous Services Canada.

There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory:

  • a boil water advisory has been in effect on the Cape Croker Public Water System since January 2019 and became long term in January 2020

The construction of a new water treatment plant and upgrades to the existing water distribution system will improve access to safe, clean drinking water for 264 homes and 20 community buildings. Once this project is complete, the community should be able to lift the long-term drinking advisory.
