Water Grandmother

Between 2011-2015, CRI developed and promoted the initiative of the “Water Grandmother” (Samaqan Nuhkomoss, Samuqwan Mi'kiju); a Maliseet person who visited with First Nations communities across New Brunswick to raise awareness and where possible, address local water quality issues. In partnership with the provincial and federal government, the CRI provided the science and technical support regarding water quality.  In addition, the CRI involvement provided the window and access point to post-secondary education opportunities in environmental management that will arose from the Water Grandmother’s work in local communities.

More past projects will be added soon
