Yesterday, Maskêkosihk (Enoch Cree Nation #440), immediately west of Edmonton, celebrated the opening of their new water pump house.

Chief Billy Morin was joined by Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations for the occasion.

“Nipiy Pimatsowin—Water is Life. This project directly closes a fundamental gap in the quality of life between Canadians and Enoch Cree Nation families,” said Morin. “Furthermore, this project provided 18,000 hours of employment to 38 Enoch member employees, and is the foundation for our residential and commercial development vision. We thank Canada for keeping their commitment.”

The project includes construction of a new water supply line and a new water reservoir and pump house to provide a sustainable drinking water supply for the community. Canada has invested $13.6 million to support construction of the new facility.
