Become a Clean Shoreline Community

Litter is a critical issue facing all of Canada's waterways in communities across the country, 

from lakes and rivers to every ocean coastline.

Through our designated Clean Shoreline Communities, we work with municipalities across the country to raise awareness of the impacts of shoreline litter. By working collaboratively, we also bring civic pride to the forefront of communities while engaging citizens to become active volunteers by heading outdoors to improve their communities and shorelines.

Is your municipality interested in addressing the important issue of shoreline litter in your community?


Contact us to find out more about becoming a designated 

Clean Shoreline Community.











Local residents and businesses take great pride in keeping our city and coastlines clean for the people and wildlife who enjoy and depend on them. By becoming a Clean Shoreline Community, we're able to boost volunteers’ efforts in keeping our many kilometres of shoreline healthy and pristine.
