Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

From coastal beaches to inland riverbanks and lakeshores, the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF’s Shoreline Cleanup, presented by Loblaw Companies LTD, provides a fun and easy way for Canadians to rehabilitate local shorelines while learning about the impacts of litter on our shorelines.

Every year, tens of thousands of Canadians take action against shoreline litter by participating in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, presented by Loblaw Companies Limited. Jointly led by the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF, this initiative focuses on educating and empowering people to make a difference through community cleanup events.

Today, the Shoreline Cleanup is one of the largest environmental events in Canada and the third largest cleanup in the world. Awareness and support for the program grows each year, dramatically increasing our impact as the public starts to better understand how shoreline litter adversely affects both aquatic life and people.

Our mission: to promote understanding and education about shoreline litter issues by encouraging Canadians to rehabilitate shoreline areas through cleanups.

Our vision: a fully engaged and committed Canadian public keeping all Canadian shorelines free from litter.
