The Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation (OFNTSC) recently presented to the Standing Senate Committee on Aboriginal Peoples regarding Bill S-11. The OFNTSC was asked to provide a technical perspective on Bill S-11 and highlight some of the challenges that First Nations are faced with while delivering safe drinking water.
The technical perspective provided in the presentation does not supersede the perspectives of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), Chiefs of Ontario (COO), and Ontario First Nations leaders regarding consultation, capital requirements, and First Nation land and treaty rights already provided by the AFN and COO.
