Join the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.

Help keep our waters healthy for everyone.

September 21 - 29, 2013

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is about removing shoreline litter to help create healthy waters for everyone, including the wildlife and communities that depend on them. You can make a world of difference by joining Canadians from coast to coast to clean up shoreline litter in your community.

Two ways for you to get involved:
  1. Become a Site Coordinator and organize a cleanup in your community.
  2. Registering to participate in an already organized cleanup.

Start by searching our online map at ShorelineCleanup.ca to find a cleanup near you. You can even suggest new cleanup sites.

About the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

A joint conservation initiative from the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF-Canada, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup presented by Loblaw Companies Limited aims to promote understanding of shoreline litter issues by engaging Canadians to rehabilitate shoreline areas through cleanups.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is now one of the largest direct action environmental events in Canada, engaging tens of thousands of participants annually in every province and territory. Each year, the public support and general awareness of the program has increased, inspiring more volunteers to join in to make a difference. In 2013, the Shoreline Cleanup is celebrating its 20th anniversary and calling for 64,000 volunteers to participate in the national effort.
