Norway House Cree Nation Water and Sewer Trucks

January 17, 2020 Success Stories

As they are in every northern community, water and sewer services are essential to the health and well-being of Norway House Cree Nation.

“These services are critical to ever member of our community, and we work hard to ensure a high level of service,” said Gerald Slater, former Director of Economic Development for Norway House Cree Nation. “But we face additional challenges, because we are a remote northern community.”

One of those challenges is the repair and replacement of their aging fleet of 22 water and sewer trucks. Slater says they’ve been able to address these and other issues through the support of partners such as the Communities Economic Development Fund (CEDF).

“The understanding and co-operation of our partners has been invaluable,” said Slater. “By working together, we’re able to maintain and improve these essential services to our community.”
