National Youth Project 2012-16: Right to Water

Our themfor the 2012-16 National Youth Project is Right to Water. Together, we’ll focus on water issues in Canadian Indigenous communities. 

The ELCIC Program Committee for Youth Ministry (PCYM) and the Youth Initiative of the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) are working as partners on this project.

The factors that contribute to the current state of indigenous communities are complex and require concerted collaboration between our governments and First Nations. The goals of the Right to Water are:

  • Right to WaterTo deepen understanding of issues related to water rights.
  • To intentionally develop relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous people in your local area.
  • To provide water and waste water to one home in Pikangikum, Ontario (an approximate cost of $20 000)
