Drinking Water Internship Program launched through Water First Education & Training, IRTC, communities partnership

Water First Education & Training Inc, the Interlake Reserves Tribal Council (IRTC), and associated communities have launched the Drinking Water Internship Program. The program, which is described as the first of its kind in Manitoba, will train members of the seven IRTC communities for careers in water treatment. Interns in the 15-month program will take part in workshops and get hands-on experience in water and wastewater treatment facilities in their communities as they develop and broaden their skills. Graduates will be prepared for careers in drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment, and environmental water management. Net News Ledger reports that the program uses a holistic approach that breaks down barriers to participation.
