Project tracker

Projected lift date: TBD


Lac La Croix First Nation in Ontario is home to 315 people on reserve.

There is 1 long-term drinking water advisory:

  • a boil water advisory has been in effect on the Lac La Croix Public Water System since January 2022 and became long term in January 2023

The advisory affects 81 homes and 11 community buildings.

The community completed emergency repairs to the water treatment plant. An advisory remains in place due to inadequate treatment.

A feasibility study to address the long-term drinking water needs of the community is complete and recommends an upgrade to the water treatment plant. Design is now underway. ISC is providing funding to Lac La Croix First Nation to continue with their water treatment plant upgrade project.

The Pwi-Di-Goo-Zing Ne-Yaa-Zhing Advisory Services Water and Wastewater Hub, funded by Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and the Giishkaandag'Ikwe Health Services Environmental Public Health Officer, continue to provide on-the-ground support to the local water operator.
