Indigenous Water Initiatives
Access to clean drinking water is a pressing challenge faced by many small and rural communities across Canada. Small drinking water treatment systems serve millions of people in North America and require a unique solution, not simply a scaled down version designed for urban centers. RES’EAU – WaterNET’s Community Circle Model for Strategic Innovation aims to address the issues inherent to this issue, with a specific emphasis on community involvement and mutual understanding. By uniting the collaborative efforts of end-users, community leadership, government, industry, and university researchers, this approach is working to develop socially and technologically sustainable drinking water outcomes across BC.
Candace Cook is a Research Engineer working on Indigenous and rural drinking water initiatives in her role with RES’EAU – WaterNET. Currently based out of the Vancouver, she is a graduate of Civil Engineering from the University of Ottawa, with a background working on First Nations projects in both the private and public sectors.
