WaterAid Canada is a member of WaterAid, an international non governmental organisation. Our mission is to transform lives by improving access to clean water, improved hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities.
WaterAid’s vision is of a world where everyone has access to clean water and sanitation.
WaterAid transforms lives by improving access to clean water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities. We work with partners and influence decision-makers to maximise our impact.
What We Do
WaterAid enables the world’s poorest people to gain access to clean water and sanitation. Together with improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the first essential step in overcoming poverty.
We work with local partners, who understand local issues, and provide them with the skills and support to help communities set up and manage practical and sustainable projects that meet their real needs.
We also work locally and internationally to change policy and practice and ensure water, hygiene and sanitation’s vital role in reducing poverty is recognised.

We work with local partners who understand local issues, providing them with the skills and support they need to help communities set up practical and sustainable projects. Technologies are used that fit the local context and people are trained to maintain them.
