    The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) on October 9, 2018, released a Statement on the Right to Safe Drinking Water by the Commission for Justice and Peace. The Statement examines from the perspective of Scripture and Catholic Social Doctrine the right to water, the problem of its privatization for corporate profit, and the ongoing issue of unsafe drinking water in some Indigenous communities in Canada. Pope Francis focused on water in his Message for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, September 1, 2018. The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed 2018-2028 as the International Decade for Action on Water for Sustainable Development.
