From: Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada

News Release

November 2, 2017    Louis Bull First Nation, AB

Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada

The Government of Canada is committed to developing sustainable waste management systems through modern infrastructure, operations, training and partnerships in consultation with our First Nation communities

Today, the Honourable Jane Philpott, Minister of Indigenous Services, congratulated the Louis Bull First Nation for the grand opening of their Solid Waste Transfer Facility. The Transfer Station was an initiative of the Louis Bull Tribe, Keepers of the Land, in support of their efforts to conserve, protect, enhance, restore and manage the environment.

This government knows that investments in solid waste management systems on reserve are critical both to protecting human health and safety and the environment. These facilities provide communities like Louis Bull with the tools to protect their environment and families.

This facility was made possible through extensive collaboration with the community and nearly $1.3 million from the First Nations Infrastructure Fund, with a further $409 million dollars being invested over the next five years for similar projects under the First Nations Waste Management Initiative through Budget 2016.
