Burlington, ON – To celebrate World Plumbing Day and World Water Day in March, Wolseley Canada announced the plan to donate a portion of all toilet sales from March 11-31, to Water First, an organization dedicated to working with Indigenous communities in Canada to address water challenges through education and training. Today, Wolseley is proud to announce their donation of $10,000 to Water First.
Wolseley Canada is donating funds and helping to drive awareness with customers, vendors and partners about the complex water challenges faced by many Indigenous communities in Canada. Currently, 35% of First Nations communities in Ontario are under a drinking water advisory.
“Access to clean water is challenge faced by far too many Canadians,” says Sébastien Laforge, President, Wolseley Canada. “With this donation, we are happy to support the important work of Water First. Thanks to our customers, associates and vendor partners who’ve made it possible.”
By supporting the Water First organization, Wolseley is investing in technical skills training to support Indigenous communities to complete water quality studies and restoration projects to strengthen fisheries and improve water quality.
Water First is Canada’s leading charitable organization dedicated to working with Indigenous communities to build capacity locally, collaborating to address both drinking water and environmental concerns. Through education, training, and meaningful collaboration, they support sustainable solutions to last generations.
