Honorary President of WaterAid Canada
Margaret Trudeau was appointed Honorary President of WaterAid Canada (formerly WaterCan) in 2002. She has seen first-hand the immense change that is possible when communities gain access to clean, safe drinking water and basic sanitation and has spoken widely of the importance of these basic facilities though speaking engagements, interviews, and awareness campaigns.
There are few things in the world that are so precious and yet so taken for granted as clean water and good sanitation. With water available at the turn of a tap, it's hard to imagine the pain and conflict parents must experience when giving their children water so dirty it could kill them, because they simply have no choice.
