CONSTANCE LAKE — A new water treatment plant was announced for the Ontario First Nations community of Constance Lake.
The new plant will lift a boil water advisory that has been in effect since 2014.
Ottawa contributed nearly $6 million dollars toward design and construction with additional funds provided by the band and the province.
Minister of Indigenous Affairs Carolyn Bennett said access to clean drinking water is something all Canadians expect.
Bennett said the government is committed to ending all drinking water advisories in Canada by 2021.
