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.

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.
