Running water is taken for granted in Canada, yet Oji-Cree people in over  1400 homes 600 km north of Winnipeg live without it. Situated on Island Lake, the sixth largest lake in Manitoba, the absence of running water denies them fire protection. It creates daily challenges for cooking and maintaining adequate levels of sanitation. The result was unacceptably high levels of H1N1 flu during the epidemic of 2009.

First Nations residents in the Island Lake region of east central Manitoba long for a clean supply of running water and sanitation that most Canadians take for granted. They discuss huge efforts that life without running water creates for cooking, bathing, laundry and keeping their homes clean. It isn't easy with their reliance on outdoor toilets and sanitation challenges of slop pail use for waste disposal during the winter.
