Hosted in partnership with the Ontario Nurses for the Environment Interest Group we are pleased to invite you to a webinar series on water and human health!
Indigenous Relationship to Water
Thursday, September 24th, 2020 1:00-2:00pm ET
In this webinar looking at the Indigenous relationship to water, Rachel Arsenault will talk about how that relationship has been impacted by water insecurity. She’ll discuss water contamination in reserves, and how water insecurity hinders many First Nations abilities to protect their members during the pandemic.
The Walkerton Inquiry
Thursday, October 1st, 2020 1:00-2:00pm ET
For nearly two years, the Canadian Environmental Law Association counsel and staff were extensively involved in representing Concerned Walkerton Citizens at the Public Inquiry investigating that Ontario community’s tainted water tragedy. In this one hour webinar with CELA Executive Director Theresa McClenaghan and Concerned Walkerton Citizens Chair Bruce Davidson, learn more about the health impacts of tainted water and government reaction to the community’s water crisis.
Note that the presentation portions of both webinars will be recorded and posted online.
