Volunteer opportunity across Canada: Shoreline cleanup

Do you feel concerned about the quality of our water? Do you want to help in cleaning the Canadian coast from debris? 

If so, you should look up the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup organisation project. Each year, all year round, WWF and the Vancouver Aquarium lead this initiative that “empowers people just like you to take action against shoreline litter through cleanups. We (Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup) are one of the largest direct action environmental programs in Canada and the third largest cleanup in the world.”

The goal of this project is to clean the Canadian coast from debris. This initiative values the earth’s health and the quality of the water for the wellbeing of present and future generations.

Everyone is encouraged to initiate a cleanup in their region. Possible cleanup locations are posted on their website.

If you live close to Montréal, you might want to consider this particular opportunity: On 27 Avril 2016 starting at 8:30 am John Abbott and McGill’s MacDonald Campus is organizing a cleanup. The location is Murray park, near the water south of John Abbott campus

All you have to do to participate is register online and show up.


I have been blogging about pipelines environmental risks for a good part of the semester. I am really concern with the quality of the water we drink. I mean, there is a huge amount of waste dumped in the water every day. I think people must be aware and sensitive about this serious phenomenon. Here’s an article where Mayor Coderre talks about the risks that a spill could have on water supply in the great Montreal area: http://newsactivist.com/en/news-summary/champlain-college-2016-newsactiv...
Otherwise, this a great volunteering opportunity for those who feel concerned!
