COVID-19: Cleanups look different in 2021 than they have in the past but that doesn't mean you're on your own. We've got resources to help you plan, like a checklist with reminders on where to look for your local public-health information and group size restrictions.

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.


Impact your community

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.

Make a difference with others
