FORMAL PROGRAM

Shoreline Ambassador¸ Certificate
The formal program is centred on the Shoreline Ambassador¸ Certificate. This certificate
provides an attractive reward which can be presented to adults and young people, for an action completed or as an acknowledgement for making a pledge for the future. Individual businesses who have a direct impact on a shoreline can also be included in the certificate program (eg. marinas, resorts, or other shoreline businesses).

Shoreline Ambassador¸ Certificates are numbered forms which will be linked into a data base for the purpose of monitoring and tracking shoreline protection, conservation and restoration activities across Canada. We are developing a sticker program to add extra appeal to the Shoreline Ambassador¸ certificates, and to differentiate varying degrees and levels of commitment; these can be modified for use by children or school groups.

To issue the certificate a group is required to enter into a formal license agreement with The
Living by Water Project. There are various rewards available for individuals making as well as completing a pledge.

Community groups interested in making use of the Shoreline Ambassador¸ Certificates are
invited to become authorized issuing agents. Contact us for more information. (Link to send
email message)
