In 2020, volunteers coordinated 86 cleanups and collected 791 kg of litter on 35.55 km of Canadian shoreline.
Important Update: We’re inspired every day by the action volunteers take on behalf of our oceans and freshwaters. Safety for everyone is our first priority. As we monitor the advice of local, provincial and federal public health groups surrounding COVID-19, we advise that upcoming cleanups should be postponed until it becomes clearer that everyone can participate safely. We thank volunteers for their cooperation and will continue to monitor this situation closely and provide additional updates.
The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a national conservation program that provides Canadians the opportunity to take action in their communities wherever water meets land, one bit of trash at a time.
You manage a team to track how much litter you find. You can even list your cleanup for other members of the community to join. It's a great feeling being a part of something.
Joining a cleanup is quick and easy. Browse through available cleanups that other volunteer teams are leading, look for one that has space available and hit join!
