Concern is mounting among First Nations communities and small rural communities in Ontario, and in other provinces and territories in Canada, because “the current system has created a situation in this country where a community’s location will be a large factor in determining the quality of water being delivered to homes not only in terms of source water quality, but also because of the skill levels and competencies required of treatment plant operators serving the community and town.” The ORWC has teamed together with the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation to develop training material for water and wastewater treatment plant operators.
