Community-Based Water Monitor (CBWM) Training


FNHA hosted a recognition dinner for Vancouver Island Region CBWMs.​

​The first annual Vancouver Island FNHA Environmental Public Health Services-delivered Community Based Water Monitor (CBWM) training and recognition events took place during March and April 2018 in Port Alberni, Saanichton and Campbell River. These events are to provide the CBWMs training and recognition for the important work they do in community. Water is an integral part of life, community and well-being. CBWMs support local capacity to monitor water quality and to increase awareness and ownership of water systems.  
CBWMs play a key role in safe drinking water for the community; contributing to the promotion of health, preventing disease, prolonging life and improving the quality of life for BC First Nations, children, families and Communities. As a token of our appreciation and recognition of the dedication of the CBWMs, FNHA hosted a dinner for all participants and presented all attendees with a vest, letter of recognition and toque.
