Water holds the key to Indigenous sustainable development. We need it for health, food, security and economic progress.

Water for all

To enable access to water sources for long term sustainability. Access to clean, quality water is the right for every person. Indigesous communities across Canada face unprecedently barriers including polical, financial and structual.

Sustainable Water Source

To provide all Canadians with equal access to clean, quality, affordable water for today and generations to come.

Best Global Water Quality

EXCEPTIONALLY PURE
Iceland is considered one of the world’s most pristine ecosystems. Icelandic Spring water possesses a naturally low mineral content (TDS of 62 ppm). Given the high quality of the water no cleaning or treatment is required (chemical, mechanical, biological).Quality is monitored throughout the distribution system.

NATURALLY ALKALINE
Filtered for thousands of years through layers of lava rock, Icelandic Spring water maintains a highly desirable and uncommonly high pH of 8.4 – 8.8, making it naturally alkaline. Due to the high pH-value, the water is alkaline and demonstrably helps regulate the acid-base balance. This water is suitable to bind and neutralize acid, therefore, toxic waste products are transported out of the human body faster.

HIGH OXYGEN LEVELSThe high content of oxygen in the Icelandic Spring water stimulates the metabolism and helps to absorb nutrients more efficiently. Will enhance athletic performance.

TESTING AND CERTIFICATIONSReykjafoss Ehf will perform continuous testing to ensure that our water will meet top food safety and quality standards. We intend to have our facilities fully accredited by the NSF to meet the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as well as the World Health Organization requirements (WHO). Our facilities will be regularly inspected by the Icelandic Public Health Authority, which carries out stringent tests to ensure the facility is operating in compliance with required standards.

pH DEFINITION AND ORIGINpH is the negative log of hydrogen ion concentration in a water-based solution. The term “pH” was first described by Danish biochemist Søren Peter Lauritz Sørensen in 1909. pH is an abbreviation for “power of hydrogen” where “p” is short for the German word for power, potenz
and H is the element symbol for hydrogen.

TDS DEFINITIONDissolved solids” refer to any minerals, salts, metals, cations or anions dissolved in water. Total dissolved solids (TDS) comprise inorganic salts (principally calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonates, chlorides, and sulfates) and some small amounts of organic matter that are dissolved in water.

Moving the agenda forward

We met with our Indigenous partners in Fredericton, NB, October 27th, 2021.

We met with our Indigenous partners in Ottawa, November 4th to discuss support from other Indigneous leaders.

Our team went toIceland November 14th, 2021 to meet with in coumntry partners.

The rest of 2020 and eariler 2021, we will be proposing concepts to Indigenous leaders across Canada, then further discussing collaboration.

International Collaboration

Working with corporate and Indigenous partners to open up collaborative opportunities.

THE BENEFITS OF ICELANDIC WATER

Iceland, with a population of around 365,000, has an overabundance of spring water and more per capita than any other country in the world. The Icelandic government is committed to sharing this water with the world and areas where water scarcity and poor-quality cause millions of deaths per annum. Gitpo Spirit Lodge along with our Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners are working together to create a supply chain opportunity, that will not only provide clean drinking water to Indigenous communities across Canada, but also create employment opportunities for Indigenous Peoples as well.
