Six Nations of the Grand River opens new water treatment plant
SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND RIVER, ON, Jan. 24, 2014 /CNW/ - On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Minister Bernard Valcourt, the Member of Parliament for Brant, Phil McColeman, today congratulated Six Nations of the Grand River on the opening of its new water treatment plant.
MP McColeman described the project as one that would bring "lasting economic benefits" to the community. The new water treatment plant will provide safe drinking water to existing and future users and can support up to 7,370 users.
This cost-shared initiative encouraged the involvement of the community in all aspects of the project and will provide the resources for long-term sustainability of the community and the families that live there.
"Improving water quality in First Nation communities is a priority for our Government and I am extremely pleased that the residents of Six Nations of the Grand River can now access clean drinking water from a new water treatment plant in their community. These kinds of investments are steadily increasing the effectiveness of water services in First Nation communities."
Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Minister
"Canada's participation in this cost-shared project is a direct result of our commitment to taking concrete steps to create the conditions for stronger, healthier, more self-sufficient First Nation communities."
Member of Parliament for Brant
"This project is very important for the future economic growth and development opportunities in our community. The new water treatment plant will provide a safe and reliable source of water for the community, and will help to bring real change and improvements for people living here."
