The Canadian government will be providing more than $1.5 billion to "accelerate" lifting all long-term drinking water advisories on reserves, announced Minister of Indigenous Services Marc Miller on Wednesday.

He said this is a "long-term" commitment and does not have an exact time frame on when all advisories will end.

In November, Ottawa had agreed to investigate the role of construction and engineering companies in the current water crisis in a remote Ontario First Nation, but the chief of Neskantaga First Nation and then said his residents would have to wait another three weeks to return home and will not be going back to clean drinking water, then.
