Leading progress, innovation, and a long-term solution for water and wastewater management for Atlantic First Nations communities.
The Atlantic First Nations Water Authority (AFNWA) is a not-for-profit, pan-Wabanaki Territory water utility that is owned and operated by First Nations, for First Nations. Our goal is to provide clean drinking water and safe wastewater services to participating First Nations communities.
AFNWA will be responsible for the operation, maintenance, and capital upgrades of all water and wastewater assets in each participating First Nations community. We are committed to helping build stronger First Nations communities in Atlantic Canada, and supporting long-term planning initiatives.
World Water Day was March 22 nd and we celebrated together with community water operators at our latest Operators Workshop. AFNWA noted the continued attendance of Dale Ward, the only Indigenous woman who is currently serving her community as a water operator in Atlantic Canada. AFNWA plans to develop initiatives that will direct women and girls to pursue studies and careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The next Operators Workshop will be in June with details to come.
