National First Nations Consolidated Infrastructure Investment Report 2014-2015

Table of contents

1. Introduction

Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) works with First Nations to support affordable and adequate housing, clean drinking water, modern and safe educational facilities, and other community infrastructure assets, such as roads and connectivity systems. These projects are essential to healthy, safe, and prosperous First Nation communities.

The First Nations Consolidated Infrastructure Investment Report encompasses the reporting period from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015. The information is presented as an annual report to align with the Annual Performance Inspection cycle, the Annual Asset Condition Reporting cycle, and the annual Data Collection Instrument cycle.

Overall, between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015, INAC invested approximately $1.1 billion in First Nations infrastructure, which was provided through INAC’s Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program.

This report follows the organization of INAC’s Program Alignment Architecture, breaking down the program by asset categories under four sub-programs.

2. Program

Program Overview

The purpose of the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program is to provide financial support and advice to First Nations in acquiring, constructing, operating and maintaining community infrastructure at standards comparable to neighbouring communities. The program makes investments to maximize the life cycle of physical assets, mitigate health and safety risks, ensure assets meet applicable codes and standards, and ensure assets are managed in a cost-effective and efficient manner

The Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program provides funding for housing and community infrastructure, including water and wastewater systems, education facilities, roads and bridges, electrification, and community buildings, as well as funding for capacity building, including water and wastewater system operators training and fire protection awareness.

Program Planning

Under the Management Control Framework for the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program, INAC uses First Nation Infrastructure Investment Plans for capital planning. This process aims to improve resource management and increase accountability through better capital planning. An effective process depends on:

  • nationally consistent planning practices, such as using a standardized Regional First Nation Infrastructure Investment Plan template;
  • using the best-available information to create plans and then to update them to reflect the current situation;
  • submission of community plans to their respective regions, followed by submission of regional plans to HQ, as per established timelines; and
  • plans that are balanced with community and regional allocations.

The FNIIP planning process reflects the existing approval authorities and roles and responsibilities set out in the Management Control Framework. It is designed around three linked plans that feed into each other:

  • a community level plan, detailing infrastructure needs;
  • a regional plan, planning out program investments; and
  • a national plan, that provides a strategic overview of First Nations infrastructure needs and Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program investments.

Program Delivery

Contributions to eligible recipients under the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program provides financial assistance to plan, construct and/or acquire, and operate and maintain community capital facilities and services (infrastructure, including schools) and housing (residential) consistent with approved policies and standards. This assistance is provided to First Nations on reserves, as well as First Nations and other eligible recipients on Crown land or recognized Indian land.

The Department's Regional Offices work in collaboration with First Nations to establish and prioritize their community First Nation Infrastructure Investment Plan according to the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program's National Priority Ranking Framework. The highest priority is assigned to those projects which mitigate the most urgent health and safety risks. Protection of assets through adequate operation and maintenance is also important to mitigating health and safety concerns and ensuring that existing and new assets reach their full life cycle.

INAC’s policies and procedures relating to the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program are set out in a number of frameworks. These policies are mainly in the department's Level of Service Standards, Protocol for INAC-Funded infrastructure, as well as the protocols for drinking water and wastewater systems, and the school space accommodation standards. The Department's policy, as stated in the Level of Service Standards, is to support and assist First Nations in providing basic community services comparable to the levels of services that would generally be available in non-native communities of similar size and circumstances.

Program Oversight

INAC provides funding support to First Nations to pay for operation and maintenance during the service life of their assets. INAC tracks the ongoing condition of these assets through different mechanisms. For water and wastewater systems, INAC tracks the systems’ risk level through Annual Performance Inspections. For education facilities and other community infrastructure, including water and wastewater systems, INAC tracks their ongoing condition through inspections that are carried out at least once every three years with the Asset Condition Reporting System. First Nations self- report on the adequacy of their housing on an annual basis with the use of a Data Collection Instrument

Life Cycle of Funded Assets

INAC promotes a life-cycle approach for infrastructure assets starting with the use of full life-cycle costing when approving capital construction projects. This type of analysis allows for the consideration of all the associated costs (e.g. for design, construction, operation and maintenance, insurance, and major renovations) of the proposed infrastructure throughout its entire life-cycle. This information is used to make comparisons between proposed options (e.g. building an expensive installation with low operating and maintenance costs versus a less-expensive facility with higher operating and maintenance costs) to determine the most cost-effective option in the short-, medium-, and long-term. This exercise is also useful in determining the funding levels required from the First Nation in future years for the operation and maintenance of the proposed infrastructure.

During an asset’s service life, INAC provides funding support to First Nations to help pay for the operation and maintenance costs of funded infrastructure assets. INAC also encourages good asset management practices by recommending that First Nations implement Maintenance Management Plans for major capital assets. To help First Nations achieve longer term use of existing assets, INAC funds inspections of some community assets, such as schools and water and wastewater systems. Currently, the performance of water and wastewater systems is assessed annuallyFootnote 1 while the condition of schools and other asset classes, including water and wastewater systems, is inspected on a three year cycle at a minimum.

As part of its efforts to encourage good asset management, INAC funds an on-site training and mentoring program for water and wastewater system operators in First Nation communities called the Circuit Rider Training Program. This program has helped improve the capacity level of the water and wastewater systems operators and the operation of systems, as well as helping First Nations benefit from the full service life of these assets.

Performance Measurement

In 2014-2015, performance for the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program is measured in accordance with the program’s 2009 Performance Measurement Strategy. The program has 21 Key Performance Indicators with targets set until 2016. The Performance Measurement Strategy was renewed in April 2014 with 20 Key Performance Indicators with targets set until 2019. Performance results are reported in the Departmental Performance Report as well as in the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy for water and wastewater system risk.

3. Funding

Funding Allocations

INAC allocates funding for the construction and the maintenance of community infrastructure to First Nations at the regional level through formula and/or proposal based project funding. The Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program budget is divided into:

Formula-based funding, which includes:

  • Operation and MaintenanceFootnote 2: for the operation and maintenance of existing community infrastructure assets. The level of funding provided to the First Nation varies from 20 per cent to 100 per cent depending on the type of asset.
  • Minor Capital FormulaFootnote 3: for housing and for acquisition, construction, renovation, or repair projects valued below $1.5 million.

Proposal-based funding, which includes:

  • Minor Capital: for housing and for acquisition, construction, renovation, or repair projects valued below $1.5 million.
  • Major Capital: for specific construction, acquisition, renovation, or significant repair projects valued above $1.5 million.

Major capital projects are funded primarily by targeted initiatives such as: funding announced by the Government of Canada for education facilities as part of the Economic Action Plan 2012, the continuation of the First Nation Infrastructure Fund announced in Economic Action Plan 2013, the extension of the First Nations Water and Wastewater Action Plan, the $500 million over seven years for Education Facilities and the $40 million over five years for Disaster Mitigation, each announced in Economic Action Plan 2014.

Eligible Initiatives and Projects

Eligible initiatives and projects are those that assist First Nations in acquiring, constructing, and operating and maintaining housing and community infrastructure including water and wastewater systems, schools, roads and bridges, electrification, and community buildings; to sustain community infrastructure including solid waste management; energy systems; local roads and bridges; connectivity; and planning and skills development or to hold activities to raise the level of fire protection awareness. The Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program’s Terms and Conditions provide further details on what supports are provided to eligible recipients.

Description of Graph 3.1 – 5-Year Funding Trend (All Votes) – All Assets ($M)

This is a stacked bar showing the five year funding trend of the entire Capital Facilities Maintenance Program (CFMP) for the years 2010-2011 to 2014-2015. Each fiscal year is divided into A-Base funding, Targeted funding, and Salary & Administration funding.

  • In 2010-2011, A-Base represents $755M, Targeted $504M and Salary & Administration $38M for a total of $1,297M.
  • In 2011-2012, A-Base represents $780M, Targeted $279M and Salary & Administration $33M for a total of $1,093M.
  • In 2012-2013, A-Base represents $755M, Targeted $282M and Salary & Administration $33M for a total of $1,070M.
  • In 2013-2014, A-Base represents $783M, Targeted $223M and Salary & Administration $30M for a total of $1,036M.
  • In 2014-2015, A-Base represents $804M, Targeted $326M and Salary & Administration $29M for a total of $1,159M.

Graph 3.1 shows the funding that has been provided by the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program over the past five years. As can be seen, A-base provides the majority of funds to First Nation infrastructure projects, followed by targeted initiatives, such as First Nations Water and Wastewater Action Plan, and the smallest portion of funding goes toward salaries and administration. While A-base and salary and administration funding will stay relatively constant, targeted initiatives fluctuate more from year to year as special programs come to an end or as new initiatives are announced by the Government of Canada. In the following sections for each program area a similar graph will be provided, with funding broken into the three areas of A-base, Targeted Initiatives and Salary and Administration for the past five years.

4. Water & Wastewater

Sub-Category Description

The goal of the Water and Wastewater sub-category is to support residents on First Nations land in meeting health and safety standards and achieving service quality comparable to those enjoyed by other Canadians living in communities of similar size and location. The Government of Canada’s comprehensive long-term strategic approach to support improved drinking water and wastewater systems on First Nations lands is based on the following four pillars: enhanced capacity building and operator training (in particular through the Circuit Rider Training Program), enforceable standards and protocols, infrastructure investments, and protection of public health.

This sub-category supports the provision of funding for the planning, procurement, design, construction, upgrade, renovation, decommissioning, and operation and maintenance of infrastructure facilities, including: community water supply, treatment and distribution systems; and community wastewater collection, treatment and disposal systems. It includes the provision of funding for: coordination, training and capacity building for activities related to water and wastewater facilities, identification of on-reserve water and wastewater infrastructure needs, development of water and wastewater infrastructure capital plans, and the planning and delivery of water and wastewater services on-reserve.

As First Nations are owners of their water and wastewater systems and are responsible for their daily operation and management, they are responsible for identifying funding requirements supporting their infrastructure and, in collaboration with INAC regional offices, ensuring these are included in the First Nation Infrastructure Investment Plan, which captures proposal and formula-based infrastructure needs for all asset categories, including water and wastewater.

In addition to the recurring base budget (A-Base) provided toward First Nations water and wastewater systems, the Water and Wastewater Program makes annual investments through the First Nations Water and Wastewater Action Plan. This horizontal initiative, which was first introduced in 2008 and extended by the Government of Canada for two years, beginning in 2014-2015, is a joint INAC-Health Canada initiative that aims at improving the health and quality of life of people in First Nation communities by assisting First Nations to provide better water and wastewater services to their residents.

The First Nations Water and Wastewater Action Plan resource allocations are prioritized as follows:

  • Priority 1 – Operation and Maintenance: Operation and Maintenance of water and wastewater facilities and systems.
  • Priority 2 – Training/capacity to operate: the Circuit Rider Training Program and the additional training of water and wastewater operators (e.g. courses, travel to courses, fees for exams, other certification-related expenses).
  • Priority 3 – Capital: construction and upgrades to water and wastewater facilities and systems:
    • Supporting First Nations in completing contractual obligations;
    • Bringing existing systems up to standard; and
    • Construction of significant upgrades and/or new systems.

To be eligible for INAC funding, all water and wastewater projects proposals must demonstrate that the systems are designed to meet and be operated according to the standards found within the Protocol for Centralised Drinking Water Systems in First Nations Communities, the Protocol for Centralised Wastewater Systems in First Nations Communities, and the Protocol for Decentralised Water and Wastewater Systems in First Nations Communities.

Projects must also demonstrate that they are the most cost-effective solution after examining all options, including but not limited to decentralized systems, trucked systems, piped systems, and mixes thereof, as per INAC’s Water and Wastewater Policy and Level of Services Standards.

In addition to capital investments, INAC provides First Nations with ongoing Operation and Maintenance funding for water and wastewater systems built with departmental funds. As owners of the facilities, First Nations are responsible for the operation and maintenance, and are expected to contribute to the associated costs. The Department’s policy is to fund up to 80 percent of Operation and Maintenance expenses for water and wastewater facilities.

Operation and Maintenance funding supports operation costs such as: the purchase of chemicals to treat water and wastewater, operational supplies, salaries and training and other personnel costs. Funding for maintenance is provided to ensure that systems continue to run safely and in optimal condition throughout their lifespan. Operation and Maintenance funding amounts vary based on the number of systems being funded and on the type and size of the systems, operator training needs and the remoteness level. Remoteness level is considered as it affects costs related to availability and transportation of goods.

Furthermore, in order to help communities build capacity to manage, operate and maintain their water and wastewater facilities, INAC provides funding to various partners that support community operators with training to manage, operate and maintain their water and wastewater facilities through the Circuit Rider Training Program. The Circuit Rider Training Program coordinates a rotation of qualified experts through a circuit of First Nations communities, providing the First Nation water and wastewater operators with on-site, hands-on training and mentoring for operating and maintaining their drinking water and wastewater systems. The program provides operators additional support via 24-hour hotlines for advice and trouble-shooting during normal operation and for any emergencies that may arise.

Oversight

To protect public health and safety, and ensure drinking water and wastewater systems are reliable throughout their life-span, these systems are inspected regularly to monitor their physical condition, identify maintenance deficiencies, and monitor ongoing system performance in providing safe drinking water and effectively treated wastewater effluent.

Asset Condition Reporting Systems inspections are performed once every three years by a qualified person to assess condition of the asset, adequacy of maintenance efforts and needs for additional maintenance work. The inspection results are used in establishing regional prioritization for funding allocations during the First Nations Infrastructure Investment Plan process.

Annual Performance Inspections, which include site visits conducted by a qualified inspector, are carried out annually to assess program key performance indicators and risk levels, per the protocols. In order to address the most pressing needs in First Nations communities, the Department uses the results from the Annual Performance Inspection to develop action plans to address noted deficiencies for the systems inspected and to help prioritize risk mitigation activities. Risk levels are also fed into the National Priority Ranking Framework and the Priority Framework for Water and Wastewater Projects, which are tools used to prioritize projects in the development of long-term First Nations Infrastructure Investment plans.

INAC measures risk comprehensively by taking into account an extensive set of factors that could lead to problems with water and wastewater systems. It is important to note that a risk rating is a measure of overall system risk, not of water or wastewater safety or quality.

Overall system risk is calculated using a weighted value for each category as follows:

Water Systems

  • Source Water Risk: 10%
  • Design Risk: 30%
  • Operation and Maintenance Risk: 30%
  • Record Keeping and Reporting Risk: 10%
  • Operator Risk: 20%

Wastewater Systems

  • Effluent Risk: 20%
  • Design Risk: 25%
  • Operation and Maintenance Risk: 25%
  • Record Keeping and Reporting Risk: 10%
  • Operator Risk: 20%

The following priority ranking matrix has been applied to both water and wastewater systems (scores are out of 10).

  • Low Risk (scores of 1 to 4): systems that operate with minor or no deficiencies.
  • Medium Risk (scores of 4.1 to 7): systems that have deficiencies that, individually or combined, pose a medium risk to the quality of water and human health.
  • High Risk (scores of 7.1 to 10): systems with major deficiencies that, individually or combined, pose a high risk to the quality of water.

The results of the 2014-2015 Annual Performance Inspections show that the number of water systems rated as low risk has increased by 30 percentage points and the number of wastewater systems rated as low risk has increased by 13 percentage points since the 2011 National Assessment of First Nations Water and Wastewater Systems was conducted.

Investment Highlights

Water and wastewater projects funded by INAC include the construction of new treatment facilities, the construction of water and wastewater storage facilities, the expansion of existing systems, renovations or upgrades of systems, the servicing of lots for new home constructions, installation of remote monitoring systems, supply lines, intakes, pumping stations, distribution system piping, house service connections, fire hydrants, tank trucks, storage reservoirs, lift stations, lagoons, force mains, sewage collection piping, manholes, outfall sewers, storage tanks, collection vehicles, and storm sewers.

From April 2006 to March 2015, the Government of Canada has invested approximately $3 billion to support First Nations in managing their water and wastewater infrastructure, including Health Canada funding. Between fiscal years 2008-2009 and 2014-2015, the average annual departmental spending to support First Nations water and wastewater services has been approximately $331 million.

In 2014-2015, 537 First Nations received funding to support on-reserve drinking water and wastewater systems. First Nations received approximately $175 million in capital investments ($66 million in A-Base Capital and $109 million in First Nations Water and Wastewater Action Plan Capital) from INAC for water and wastewater projects. Projects funded included the construction of new treatment facilities, the construction of water and wastewater storage facilities, the expansion of existing systems and the servicing of lots for new home construction.

In addition to capital investments, INAC also provided First Nations with $140 million in Operation and Maintenance investments ($85 million in A-Base Operation and Maintenance and $56 million in First Nations Water and Wastewater Action Plan Operation and Maintenance) for water and wastewater systems built with departmental funds.

Safe Drinking Water for First Nations Act

While all provinces and territories have laws governing the treatment and distribution or disposal of drinking water and wastewater, there is no comprehensive regulatory regime governing the same on First Nation lands. To address this regulatory gap, Parliament passed the Safe Drinking Water for First Nations Act in June 2013, which came into force on November 1, 2013. The Act allows the Government to develop, in partnership with First Nations, enforceable federal regulations to ensure access to safe, clean, and reliable drinking water; the effective treatment of wastewater; and the protection of sources of drinking water on First Nation lands.

Regulations will be developed with input from First Nations, provincial/territorial governments, and other stakeholders, region-by-region. It is expected that one set of federal regulations will be developed for each region, harmonizing as much as possible with the relevant provincial/territorial regulations. Once regulations are developed and approved, implementation will be phased-in over a number of years. This will provide the Federal Government and First Nations the opportunity to bring infrastructure and capacity to the levels required to meet regulatory requirement.

Glooscap First Nation, Nova Scotia – New Water Reservoir

Glooscap First Nation has an on-site population of 87 and is located 69km northwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The community receives its potable water from the Town of Hantsport through a Municipal Transfer Service Agreement. The Town provides potable water to Glooscap directly from the Town of Hantsport’s water treatment via a dedicated transmission line. Without an on-site reservoir in Glooscap, there was insufficient contact time to ensure adequate disinfection prior to consumption. Additionally, the community experienced regular interruptions in service due to operational disruptions (power outages, maintenance cycles, etc.) at the Hanstport water treatment plant.

The construction of the underground reservoir allowed for sufficient contact time before the water entered the distribution system. The reservoir included a secondary chlorination to ensure adequate disinfection for maintaining residual chlorine throughout the distribution system. The reservoir has sufficient capacity to store a 48-hour supply of water which greatly reduces the interruptions in service that were previously experienced. An added bonus of this storage was an increase fire flow capacity.

With the addition of the reservoir, the Glooscap water system is compliant with all applicable regulations and guidelines. The overall project costs were $793,000, cost-shared at $519,950 by INAC, $193,750 by the Town of Hantsport, and $15,000 by Glooscap First Nation.

Keewaytinook Okimakanak Tribal Council, Ontario – Water Monitoring Units

INAC provided $1 million for a remote water quality monitoring pilot project at five Keewaytinook Okimakanak (KO) member First Nation communities.

KO will deploy TRITON Continuous Water Quality Monitoring Units at the water treatment plants in Deer Lake, North Spirit Lake, Keewaywin, Poplar Hill, and Fort Severn First Nations. These water quality monitoring units aim to provide operational support to the communities’ water treatment operators, and form part of the KO Operational HUB.

Since 2012, the KO communities have worked on the development of technology for continuous, real time monitoring of drinking water quality with a private sector firm, A.U.G. Signals Ltd.

As part of this pilot project, the five units are being connected to monitoring equipment in the Keewaytinook Centre of Excellence in Dryden which is capable of displaying and archiving the data from the units.

A.U.G. Signals Ltd. has also agreed to ongoing equipment improvements and an operation and maintenance package for the first three years of operation.

Keewaytinook Okimakanak, which means "Northern Chiefs" in Oji-Cree, is a non-political Chiefs Council in Ontario serving Deer Lake, Fort Severn, Keewaywin, McDowell Lake, North Spirit Lake and Poplar Hill First Nations. The organization is directed by the Chiefs of the member First Nations who form the Board of Directors. KO provides services in the areas of health, education, economic development, employment assistance, legal, public works, finance and administration, and computer communications (K-Net Services).

Kasabonika Lake First Nation, Ontario – New Wastewater Lagoon

Kasabonika Lake First Nation is located 448 kilometres northeast of Sioux Lookout, Ontario, along the Asheweig River.

A partnership between the Kasabonika Lake First Nation and the Government of Canada will see the construction of a new, cost-effective wastewater treatment system in the Kasabonika Lake community that meets all regulatory requirements. Once complete, the system will provide a safe method of wastewater treatment for the community’s projected population over the next 20 years.

Kasabonika Lake First Nation awarded the contract to Arnason Industries Ltd. on March 2, 2015. INAC is investing nearly $9.9 million for this project to meet the current and future needs of Kasabonika Lake First Nation.

Norway House Cree Nation, Manitoba – Jack River School Water & Wastewater

Norway House Cree Nation #278, located 460 kilometers north of Winnipeg at the confluence of the Nelson River and Lake Winnipeg in central Manitoba, has a membership of approximately 6,900 in which 5,650 live on-reserve. The community's elementary school, Jack River School, was built in the early 1970s and was equipped with its own dedicated water and sewer plants. On the grounds of both capacity and irreplaceable parts issues, the facilities required a complete rebuild/replacement in order to satisfy current demand and regulations

In a joint funding effort between Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada and the Province of Manitoba, the community undertook a $4.5 million upgrade of the water treatment facility, the wastewater treatment plant and the piping serving their Jack River School and Teacherages complex between 2013 and 2015. Diligent project co-ordination by the School's maintenance manager on behalf of the Frontier School Division resulted in the safe (while school was in session) and successful completion of the multi-stage project. The upgraded water and wastewater facilities will ensure continued healthy water for Norway House Cree Nation's children.

God's Lake First Nation, Manitobaa – New Sewage Treatment Plant

God's Lake First Nation is located 240 kilometers southeast of Thompson, Manitoba at the point of the narrows in God's Lake. It is accessible by air and by winter road via provincial highway 373. The community has approximately 2,630 members, with an on-reserve population of 1,415.

The construction of a new $11,544,976 wastewater treatment facility was started in 2013-2014 with completion scheduled for summer of 2015-2016. The new plant replaces an existing sewage treatment plant that was overloaded and did not treat sewage adequately to meet current regulatory guidelines. Funding for the project was made possible through Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada's First Nation Water and Wastewater Action Plan.

James Smith Cree Nation, Saskatchewan – Water Treatment Plant

James Smith Cree Nation is comprised of three sub-communities: James Smith; Chakastaypasin; and Peter Chapman. The total on-reserve population is 2,028. The communities are located 178 km South-East of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. The bands recently celebrated the opening of a new $7.2 million water treatment plant, which incorporates leading-edge biological membrane filtration technology.

Construction of the plant began in 2012, with design and construction conducted by Bullee Consulting. The facility is expected to accommodate the ever increasing water needs for the bands for a number of years, while exceeding all current Canadian drinking water guidelines. Funding for the James Smith water system came from Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada’s First Nation Water and Wastewater Action Plan.

Louis Bull Tribe, Alberta – Raw Water Supply Line

Louis Bull Tribe is located 100 km south of Edmonton, encompassing 3,127 hectares with a population of 2,000 people.

The catalyst for this project was the emergency water hauling due to the lack of raw water supply which cost upwards of $370,000 per year. The creation of a hydrological drilling program was initiated to locate additional supply wells. The project included the construction of over two kilometers of raw water supply lines and the tie-in of four raw water wells in series with each other. The Raw Water Supply project utilized $1.49 million from multiple funding sources (A-Base/First Nations Water and Wastewater Action Plan).

The project was fully commissioned and operational in August 2015. The key result is that there is now a dependable raw water supply to the core area treatment plant and that costly emergency water hauling is no longer necessary.

Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band, British-Columbia – Quaaout I.R.1 Water Improvements

Quaaout I.R. No.1 is the main community of the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band, and is located 11 km north-east of the Village of Chase, British Columbia. Approximately 176  eople living in the community. The Quaaout community uses four wells for its water which undergoes chlorine disinfection before reaching consumers. The Quaaout community struggled with deteriorating wells and elevated levels of manganese from some of the wells. In 2011, the main community’s two primary wells suffered a significant drop in water level and capacity. One of the wells was abandoned and a temporary well was created nearby to supplement the community’s water demands until a more permanent solution could be developed.

In 2014-2015 two new wells were developed, a new treatment facility was constructed and obsolete wells and treatment infrastructure were decommissioned. INAC funded $4.8 million for these upgrades. The provided funds was spent on all aspects of the project including a feasibility study, design and construction.

Looking Forward

The Federal Government will continue to work with First Nations, provinces, territories, and other stakeholders to build on progress already achieved. The Government of Canada plans to allocate $660 million to INAC between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2016, to fund on-reserve water and wastewater infrastructure and complementary activities. The funding includes grants and contributions as well as departmental operational budgets.

The goal of the Water and Wastewater sub-category is that First Nation communities have a base of safe water and wastewater that meets established standards; Departmental activities in 2015-2016 will align with this objective and be rooted in the Government of Canada’s long-term strategic four pillars approach as follows:

  • Work with First Nations, provincial and territorial governments and other stakeholders to develop federal regulations to ensure access to safe, clean and reliable drinking water, the effective treatment of wastewater, and the protection of sources of water on First Nation lands.
  • Continue to provide a strategic response to the National Assessment findings in order to improve and strengthen results for water and wastewater in First Nation communities such as:
    • Clarifying applicable standards and protocols to bolster water and wastewater protection on reserve until regulations are in place;
    • Increasing First Nation capacity to operate and maintain drinking water and wastewater systems by augmenting the number of certified operators, increasing funding for operator training and operation and maintenance, and implementing the new Circuit Rider Training Guidelines; and
    • Prioritizing capital investments to target highest risk systems.
  • Support First Nations in developing regional hubs of expertise and in supporting monitoring and, where feasible, operating systems remotely as already implemented in Alberta.
  • Continuing to support First Nations to comply with the requirements of Environment Canada’s Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations.

5. Education Facilities

Sub-Category Description

This sub-category supports the provision of funding for the planning, design, construction/acquisition, renovation, repair, replacement, and operation and maintenance of elementary and secondary education facilities (including but not limited to school buildings) and any related facility services for the benefit of First Nations students.

Annually, INAC provides funding to support First Nations communities across the country in addressing their education infrastructure needs. Additional investments in school infrastructure through targeted initiatives have also been provided so that education facilities meet established standards.

Oversight

School infrastructure assets are assessed on a three year cycle under the Asset Condition Reporting System. A General Condition Rating is provided for schools assets based on an overall assessment for all components of the asset. INAC has a target of 70% for education facilities to have a General Condition Rating score greater than "fair condition." As of April 1, 2015, 65% of schools met this target.

Investment Highlights

In 2014-2015, the Education Infrastructure Fund provided funding for 15 school projects (partially or completely), including 11 new schools and 4 additions and/or renovations representing an investment of $89,481,602.

In line with INAC’s overall commitment to funding education facilities that create quality learning environments that are safe and healthy for First Nation students on reserve, an additional $500 million over seven years was announced in 2014-2015 to supplement the Education Infrastructure Fund, beginning 2015-2016.

The Major Capital Infrastructure Project Delivery Directorate was created to support the Department in delivering the educational facilities funded through the Education Infrastructure Fund. The role of the Directorate is to provide central project management assistance to increase effectiveness and efficiency in the delivery of capital projects by improving and/or developing new approaches, processes and tools. The first project to be implemented by the Major Capital Infrastructure Project Delivery Directorate is the Manitoba Schools Initiative, which aims to provide Bunibonibee Cree Nation, God’s Lake First Nation, Manto Sipi Cree Nation, and Wasagamack First Nation, improved access to quality learning environments.

Eel Ground First Nation, New Brunswick – New School

Eel Ground First Nation has an on-reserve registered population of 545 and is located approximately 160 km northwest of Moncton, New Brunswick. The community’s previous school was constructed in 1977 and no longer met the community’s needs. This new facility cost $9.02 million and was designed with the latest construction and energy efficiency technology, which will significantly reduce operating costs.

Through the Education Infrastructure Fund’s Budget 2012 envelope, INAC was able to secure investment in the order of $8.02 million for the community to proceed with construction of the new education facility, including $7.52 million in targeted funding, and $500,000 in regional departmental funding. Eel Ground First Nation contributed $900,000 to the cost of the new school and the eco-Energy Program contributed $100,000

This new school was completed in March 2015 and provides a safe and quality learning environment for the children of Eel Ground First Nation. It will limit the need for children to attend school off reserve and ultimately enhance the community’s educational outcomes.

Wemotaci Atikamekw FN, Quebec – Renovation and Expansion of the Seskitin School

The Wemotaci Atikamekw First Nation population totals 1,427. The reserve is located on the North Shore of the St Maurice River, 100 km northwest of La Tuque.

The Wemotaci elementary school was built in 1971 and expanded in 1983 and 1997. The school, serves students in junior kindergarten (K-4) and kindergarten (K-5) as well as elementary grades 1 to 6.

Reconstruction and expansion of the school became necessary to meet the need for additional space and to address major problems related to the existing building, namely the structure, the roof and the mechanical system.

The school was rebuilt on its existing foundation and a second floor was added to increase its area from 2,992 to 3,134 square meters. The structure was upgraded and the lockers and storage spaces were also renewed.

The work was carried out between July 2014 and August 2015 with the participation of INAC at a cost of $8.2 million.

Attawapiskat First Nation, Ontario – New school

The Attawapiskat First Nation is located on the west coast of James Bay, approximately 1,030 kilometers by air northwest of Toronto, Ontario.

In September 2014, the Attawapiskat First Nation opened its new school facility that accommodates approximately 540 students from junior kindergarten (K-4) to grade 8, and also functions as a centrally located gathering place to hold events, meetings and celebrations. The new school is called Kattawapiskak, which means "people of the parting rocks."

The new 5,808 square meters elementary school has classrooms for junior kindergarten (K-4) to grade 8, a gym with a stage, a library, Cree culture and language classrooms, computer labs, a home economics room, an industrial arts classroom, a music room and a cafeteria. The play fields include a soccer/football field, a baseball diamond, a ball/ice hockey rink, as well as play areas and equipment for younger students.

Shamattawa First Nation, Manitoba – New School

Shamattawa First Nation is a remote community accessible by air and winter roads, located approximately 1,277 kilometers north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, with an on-reserve population of approximately 1,300.

The $38.9 million project was funded from the Education Infrastructure Fund’s Budget 2012 envelope designated for new schools and major renovations on-reserve. The project includes a new school building with 18 classrooms and capacity for 61 kindergarten students and 356 students in grades 1-12. The school design includes a library, gymnasium, space for home economics and industrial arts, computer and science labs and special education classrooms. The project also includes construction of three new teacherages, as well as repairs to existing teacherages. The project was initiated in 2012 and will be completed in winter of 2016.

Red Earth First Nation, Saskatchewan – School

Red Earth First Nation, which is located 430 km east of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, has an on-reserve population of approximately 1,450. In March 2015, the community celebrated the grand opening and rededication of the community’s expanded and renovated Mamawe Awasis Elementary School. In total, $20.6 million in upgrades and additions went into the facility.

The school, which has a student population of over 500 kids, added new elementary space for junior kindergarten (K-4) to grade 8 students, along with an on-site daycare and space for the community’s HeadStart Program. In addition, the school incorporated on-site student dental healthcare programming and services. In total, over 2,280 square meters of floor space were added onto the existing school.

The expansion and renovation project was completed through contributions from INAC ($19 million), along with Health Canada, Saskatchewan Indian Training Assessment Group, the Prince Albert Grand Council and the First Nation ($1.6 million combined).

Blood Tribe, Alberta – School Expansion

Blood Tribe has a registered on-reserve population of 12,116 and is located in southwestern Alberta 70 km southwest of Lethbridge. The Blood Tribe land area is approximately 1,343 km2 making it the largest reservation in Canada. Blood Tribe is comprised of seven communities: Standoff, Moses Lake, Lavern, Old Agency, St. Mary’s, St. Paul’s and Fort Whoop Up. Standoff is the administrative centre for the community.

The main Saipoyi school located in Standoff was built in 2004 and served over 400 students from kindergarten (K-5) to grade 4. Over the years it outgrew its design size and was not large enough to meet the needs of an increasing elementary student population. As a result, a 508 square meters addition was built and includes four new classrooms with each classroom accommodating 25 students.

The four new classrooms in the two additions were fabricated using modular building technology thereby enabling the project to be completed within an eight-month period. The staff and students occupied their new classrooms by February 2014.

On May 5, 2014, representatives from INAC and ATCO Sustainable Communities joined Chief Charles Weasel Head, the Kainai Board of Education, Saipoyi staff and students, and Blood Tribe community members to celebrate the grand opening of the school’s expansion.

The Government of Canada funded $1.39 million through the Innovation Fund’s Budget 2012 envelope, with Blood Tribe cost sharing the remaining balance with own-source revenue.

Looking Forward

The Government of Canada is committed to funding on-reserve education facilities that create quality learning environments that are safe and healthy, thereby ensuring better educational outcomes for First Nation students living on reserve.

Moving forward, the Department will be focusing on completing commitments under the Education Infrastructure Fund’s 2012 envelope, and developing a strategy for the successful implementation of the Education Infrastructure Fund’s 2014 investments.

In implementing these new investments, INAC will be building on lessons learned from the investments made under Budget 2012. To that end, the Department is currently working on measures to improve the school infrastructure program. These changes are to ensure that future funding is associated with modern industry standards and practices for procurement, construction and operation and maintenance, and that schools remain in working condition for their full life cycle. The Department has consulted with private industry and First Nation technical organizations on the development of this new approach which is scheduled to be implemented during the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

In allocating funding for education facilities INAC will continue to use the First Nation Infrastructure Investment Plan and the School Priority Ranking Framework tools. The First Nation Infrastructure Investment Plan is used to identify school infrastructure needs. The School Priority Ranking Framework applies a point ranking system based on nationally established criteria to rank schools eligible for funding. The first priority remains addressing health and safety concerns. Other factors such as state of readiness, ability to bundle projects, cost sharing opportunities and other opportunities to achieve efficiencies are also considered in investment decisions.

6. Housing

Sub-Category Description

The Government of Canada invests an average of $300 million in on-reserve housing each year through Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and INAC. INAC offers annual funding that First Nations can use to meet a range of housing needs, including: maintenance, insurance, debt financing, rehabilitation of existing houses, and the planning and management of housing activities. In 2014–2015, INAC alone invested approximately $129 million in on-reserve housing, which has supported an increase in the number of adequate houses on reserve.

Oversight

In 2014-2015, INAC provided approximatively $129 million in on-reserve housing support to First Nations, which supported the completion of 55 projects, and allowed the commencement of 227 proposal projects which are still in progress. As a result, 76% of First Nations housing was deemed "adequate" as assessed and reported annually by First Nations, exceeding the 2014-2015 target of 72%.

Investment Highlights

Housing Requirements Study – Quebec

In August 2014, the third edition of the report on The Housing Needs of the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador was tabled.

The report, which was produced by the Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador and supported by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, stems from an analysis of changes in the First Nations’ housing stock.

This analysis, which includes fact sheets for each community, focuses on construction; renovation; the presence of mould, radon and vermiculite; and the viability of lots. It describes observed trends, as well as the challenges related to housing needs, such as a growing population, funding, indebtedness, increasing financial risks and the widening gap. The report ends with possible solutions and a proposed financial framework.

The report findings were presented to and shared with all Quebec Region communities and at the Annual General Meeting of the Assembly of First Nations, which was held in Montreal from July 7 to 9, 2015.

The report lays the foundation and the premises for meeting, constructively and inclusively, the primary objective of improving the housing situation and, at the same time, the health and safety conditions of occupants.

The report was produced with the financial participation of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada at a cost of $37,900.

Pikangikum First Nation, Ontario – Seven unit multi-housing project

The Department provided $800,000 towards a seven unit multi-housing project for the Pikangikum First Nation. The project will provide sustainable housing options to the community.

Support came from the federal government’s Northern Communities Opportunities Fund initiative. The seven unit multi-housing complex was completed in September 2014 and will help the First Nation to alleviate overcrowding and reduce waiting lists for housing. Rental revenue will be used to implement maintenance plans and pursue other sustainable housing models in the community.

The Northern Communities Opportunities Fund is aimed at supporting northern remote communities to promote and implement rental regimes, effective maintenance plans, energy efficient technologies, local employment and skill development. Pikangikum First Nation was chosen as one of the six communities who met these requirements.

Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc First Nation, British Columbia – Housing

Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc is located in Kamloops, British Columbia and has a registered on-reserve population of 550. In 2013-2014, the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc Housing Manager assumed a housing portfolio with escalating arrears and embarked on a strategy to implement financial accountability and consistent practices for the delivery of housing. This involved engaging members and Council to outline the financial and social impacts from past housing administration practices, along with recommendations for moving forward with updated policies, plans and processes

The Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc housing inventory consists of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Section 95 agreements, Band and individual owned homes. Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc is approved for loans through the First Nation Market Housing Fund.

In 2014-2015, INAC BC Region introduced the New Approach to Housing Support as an option to its existing housing subsidy program. The program was developed with input from First Nations in British Columbia, Health Canada and Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation.

Through the New Approach to Housing Support the First Nation was recently approved by INAC for $530,000 towards a $2.6 million project to develop 10 new lots and build 10 homes. This investment will allow the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc to better leverage financing, and enhance building quality and affordability by providing stable funding for the project.

As a result of Council's support of the Housing Manager's initiative and working with partners including INAC, the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc is positioned for a robust and accountable housing delivery regime.

Taku River Tlingit First Nation, Yukon – Small House Project 2014-2015

Taku River Tlingit First Nation is located in Northern British Columbia, close to the Yukon Border. Taku River Tlingit First Nation decided to do a pilot project to construct energy-efficient "small homes" that were large enough for single First Nation members living in Atlin, B.C.

Taku River Tlingit accessed their Minor Capital in the amount of $205,000 towards the purchase of materials to build 3 small homes in Atlin, British Columbia.

Taku River Tlingit First Nation secured additional funds and in-kind payments from Taku River Tlingit First Nation Economic Development, Yukon Mining Training Association, TriCorp and the Union of Carpenters and Builders – Yukon Local.

The total cost for training 15 students and construction of the three homes was approximately $550,000, including in-kind costs.

The project included a 17 week training component with 15 students from the community enrolled in the program. Of these students, 14 were 1st year apprentices and 1 student was a 4th year apprentice. Classroom and on-site mentorship and training was provided by local Journeyman Carpenters employed by or members of Taku River Tlingit First Nation. The days were split between classroom and the construction site.

Three energy efficient small houses (under 400 square feet each and included a single bedroom, full bathroom, full kitchen, living room and loft) were constructed by the students. Homes also included above-code insulation to reduce energy needs.

Two of the houses are occupied by two of the students that went through the pilot project and the one remaining is currently unoccupied.

Looking Forward

INAC is planning to allocate over $138 million annually for on-reserve housing over the next three fiscal years.

INAC will continue to collaborate with Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, particularly on capacity-development initiatives and information sharing. INAC will also continue to collaborate with the Assembly of First Nations, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Health Canada on joint initiatives such as mould remediation.

Investment Highlights

In 2014-2015, the Department provided approximately $424 million in funding for 394 Other Community Infrastructure proposal-based projects (see Table 7.3 for detailed breakdown of investments) or organizations to deliver projects. Highlights from these investments include:

  • The management of 91 projects under the First Nations Infrastructure Fund (FNIF), across 6 categories of investment. The management of the FNIF was also improved in 2014-15 through the development of a project review process for the Building Canada Fund envelope of the fund.
  • Funding of $309,739 for the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada to organize a number of fire prevention awareness and training initiatives throughout the year, including the annual National Aboriginal Firefighters Competition and the National Fire Safety Poster Contest for school-aged children and youth.
  • The Department expanded the national BeFireSafe education campaign in partnership with the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada and continues to raise awareness of the importance of fire prevention in First Nation communities. The year-long campaign aims to reduce fire-related deaths, injuries and damages by sharing seasonal fire safety tips and information through regular radio features, social media messaging and safety videos.

Lennox Island First Nation, Prince Edward Island – Bridge Repairs

The Lennox Island Band has an on-reserve population of 393 and is located 24km north of Summerside, Prince Edward Island. The Lennox Island Bridge is the only land-link between Lennox Island First Nation and Prince Edward Island. The 252.4m bridge was constructed in 1973 and is made up of a reinforced concrete deck supported by pre-stressed concrete girders, pile caps/abutments and steel pipe piles.

Since 2009, repairs have been carried out in order to prolong the lifespan of the bridge and avoid a full replacement of the structure. Most recently, $901,000 worth of work was completed in 2014-2015, INAC invested a total of $2.76 million spent on the structure since 2009. Work has included concrete surface repair to the concrete deck, soffit area, girders and piers; concrete crack injection; carbon fiber polymer reinforcement; and rehabilitation of exposed steel pipe piles. The completed repairs added many additional years to a bridge that was nearing the end of its expected life.

Natashquan Montagnais First Nation – Quebec – Reconstruction of Aerated Lagoons

The population of the Natashquan Montagnais First Nation is 973. The reserve is located on the Lower North Shore, at the mouth of the Natashquan River along the Gulf of St Lawrence, 336 km east of Sept-Îles.

Reconstruction of the aerated lagoons became necessary to meet established environmental standards for discharging treated water into the river and to meet the increase in treatment capacity for the next 25 years.

The aerated lagoons were redeveloped and an extended aerated system was installed. The treatment plant building, the sewage discharge pump and the pumping station were also rehabilitated. In addition, sludge is now pumped into large storage bags to be converted and used to cover the landfill site.

Aboriginal workforce skills were developed while the work was being carried out.

The work was carried out between July 2013 and July 2014 with the financial support of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada at a cost of $5 million.

Pessamit Innu Band, Quebec – Street Paving

The population of the Pessamit Innu First Nation is 2,862. The reserve is located on the North Shore of the St Lawrence River, 54 km southwest of Baie-Comeau.

The street paving project became necessary in the oldest part of the community, which lacked a storm drain system and was not safe for users.

Street paving made it possible to correct the problems of water accumulation, which was damaging the highway, maintenance, dust reduction and gravel requirements for levelling. The work was carried out under the First Nations Infrastructure Fund between June 2014 and August 2015, at a cost of $672,788.

Shoal Lake No. 40 First Nation, Ontario – Design of Freedom Road

Shoal Lake No. 40 First Nation, located approximately 55 kilometres southwest of Kenora, Ontario, has approximately 593 members, 286 of whom live on reserve.

INAC, the Province of Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg are partnering in this initiative by providing $1 million each for the design phase of Freedom Road, an all-season road linking the First Nation community to the Trans-Canada Highway. The design phase is the basis for establishing the costs associated with the construction of the project. Once the costs are determined, discussions regarding the funding of the road can take place.

19 First Nation Communities,Ontario – Diesel Generating Stations and Fuel Tank Systems

In May 2015, INAC announced investments in infrastructure for 19 Ontario communities, most of which are remote First Nations. INAC is providing $29 million for the design and upgrades to diesel generating stations and fuel tank systems at core facilities.

Diesel generation stations and fuel tank projects are in progress at Deer Lake, Fort Severn, Poplar Hill, Mishkeegogamang, and North Spirit Lake First Nations at a total cost of $16,414,415.

INAC is also supporting fuel tank design projects in the amount of $3,022,000 at Attawapiskat, Kashechewan, Fort Albany, Mishkeegogaming, Sandy Lake, Weenusk, Eabametoong, Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, and Wikwemikong First Nations.

INAC has provided $9,090,894 to Poplar Hill, Pikangikum, Kasabonika Lake, Muskrat Dam, Mattagami, Webequie and Sachigo Lake First Nations for completed projects that address the unique electrical challenges and fuel tank issues faced by these communities.

Tootinaowaziibeeng Treaty Reserve, Manitoba – Bridge Replacement and Road Upgrade

Tootinaowaziibeeng Treaty Reserve has an on-reserve population of 655 and is located along the Valley River 398 kilometers northwest of Winnipeg and 17 kilometers northwest of Dauphin, Manitoba. The Bridge Replacement and Road Upgrade Project replaced a rapidly deteriorating bridge over the Valley River that provided direct access to the community. The Project also raised and enlarged two crucial culvert crossings that were perennially flooded forcing local traffic to use an alternate 80 kilometer route for community access.

The new bridge is located about 50 meters from the original bridge. Access to the new bridge required a new road alignment. The bridge consists of prefabricated structural steel with timber deck supported on an abutment substructure consisting of timber cribbing supported on driven steel piles. The bridge was designed to meet current provincial standards, is wider than the original and contains a walkway for safer pedestrian access.

This $1.2 million First Nations Infrastructure Fund project, started in fiscal 2014-2015 and scheduled to be completed in October 2015, will provide safe, efficient vehicular access and lessen the possibility of future flooding in the community.

Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation – Waste Transfer Station – Alberta

Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation is located in northwest Alberta on the shores of Sturgeon Lake. The on-reserve population figures at 1,452, with a registered population of 3,206.

The existing landfill had surpassed its capacity and the First Nation was limited in usable designated land for this type of facility. As more housing units came into service, the need to have an alternative waste management facility increased. The decision was made to construct a solid waste transfer station and close and cap the existing landfill site. The new transfer station site was constructed with essential containers to allow for the intake and proper disposal of all types of household and hazardous waste. The First Nation has also equipped the facility with the required vehicles/equipment to haul this material off site. INAC provided $5.05 million in funding through First Nation Infrastructure Fund and A-Base regional funding during the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

The First Nation had an operation plan completed by the design consultant for health and safety, environmental and operational procedures. Equipment training was provided by Haul-All. Due diligence was exercised by engaging the Edmonton Solid Waste Management Centre to assist with community engagement and awareness, and to ensure that ongoing education and information could be best promoted by the nation’s leadership. The engagement protocol utilized by Sturgeon Lake was recently acknowledged by the Green School Summit held in Calgary in September 2015. Leadership plans on continuing workshops and training with the community to ensure smooth adjustment from a landfill system to a transfer station system, and has already entered into agreement with the Greenview Regional Waste Management Commission for offsite hauling of their waste materials

Ehattesaht / Zeballos Fire Department Partners – British Columbia

The Ehattesaht First Nation is a remote community of 99 people situated on the north-west coast of Vancouver Island. Being a small community, Ehattesaht has been unable to maintain a roster of firefighters.

Across the river, lies the adjacent off-reserve Village of Zeballos, with a population of 125 people. Although Zeballos had an established Fire Department, their firefighter roster was also dwindling, their firetruck was functionally obsolete, and they were unable to raise the money to purchase a new one.

In 2014-2015, a collaborative arrangement was struck between the two communities. INAC agreed to purchase a new firetruck and the Village of Zeballos housed the truck in its fire hall. The combined firefighters from Ehatteshat and Zeballos now provide fire protection services for both communities.

Currently, operation and maintenance for the truck, fire hall and equipment along with firefighter training is funded by the Village of Zeballos. A Municipal Type Service Agreement has been developed to cover the depreciation of capital assets, over time.

Looking Forward

In 2015-2016, INAC will support Other Community Infrastructure and Activities in the following ways:

  • Continue collaborating with the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada to define and implement the Joint First Nations Fire Protection Strategy 2015-2020, building on the successes and lessons learned of the existing 2010-2015 strategy.
  • Work to implement the renewed First Nation Infrastructure Fund, including expanding the fund to include disaster mitigation and developing a proposal review process for the Building Canada Fund funding envelope of the First Nation Infrastructure Fund.
  • Support Regional Offices and First Nations with the identification, prioritization, and proposal of structural disaster mitigation projects on a comparable national scale, in using the Structural Mitigation Framework and Structural Mitigation Ranking Tool.

8. Conclusion – Long-term Initiatives

Improving infrastructure outcomes for First Nations across Canada is a priority for the Government of Canada. As well, developing greater self-sufficiency and exploring alternative approaches to governance and capacity support for asset management will be a focus for the Department in the coming year. For example, discussions have begun with the Atlantic Policy Congress in the Atlantic region on examining options for an aggregated authority to manage all water and wastewater facilities within the Atlantic region. This type of approach could develop under a centralized authority responsible for maintaining quality water services for all First Nation communities. Along with examining alternative approached to financing and procuring infrastructure, the Department will continue to support the exploration of innovative approaches to the delivery of infrastructure programs and services on reserve.

The Department is committed to continuing to support First Nations in the operation and maintenance of public infrastructure and will be supporting reforms to the Asset Condition Reporting System through the inclusion of fire-safety inspections in 2015-2016.

Capacity development will also be a focus for the Department. Building on the success of the Circuit Rider Training Program for water and wastewater, the Department will examine options for improved capacity for the operation and maintenance of other infrastructure assets.

Finally, the Department will work towards exploring options to improve outcomes for operation and maintenance of infrastructure on reserve. Focusing efforts and targeted funding towards operation and maintenance will have a significant impact on meeting the desired outcomes and targets not only for the Department, but for First Nation communities across Canada. Effective and sustainable operation and maintenance of infrastructure helps protect the health and safety of all communities by supporting endeavours to maintained infrastructure to a consistent standard.
