Innovative Water and Wastewater Management Training program to receive funding from Indigenous Initiatives Fund
January 20, 2017 —
By partnering together, the U of M and ILDII can be a part of the solution to solving the water crisis that First Nations are experiencing. Dr. Yuan at the U of M has intensive experience working with First Nations on solving their sanitation problems. She is actively involved in CREATE H2O program. She has collaborated with Bearpaw Engineering & Project Management (Aboriginal owned and operated engineering firm) on First Nations wastewater lagoon projects. She has also been actively involved in Manitoba small wastewater treatment system training workshops. ILDII has undertaken many governance and leadership projects for First Nations people on reserve and off for the past 16 years through strategic partnerships. Initiatives such as the annual World Indigenous Business Forum, the Core Governance Practices for First Nations project and the Executive Training Courses have all enhanced the capacity of First Nations people and their communities. Two on-going successful programs that are relevant to this initiative are the Empowering Indigenous Youth in Governance and Leadership (EIYGL), and the Indigenous Carpentry Program which has graduated over 188 participants. ILDII has seen firsthand that Indigenous youth can succeed in obtaining training towards a career path, and that what is needed is: an awareness campaign of what opportunities are available; effective supports that are based on individual needs assessments; and strategic partnerships with community members and organizations that have invested interests in seeing successful outcomes for capacity building in Indigenous people.
