The Shoreline Action Challenge Program

All of us can play a role in helping protect, conserve or restore shorelines – and all of us benefit from the results of these efforts – healthy shorelines. Healthy shorelines help protect water quality, fish and wildlife habitat and provide wonderful spaces for our relaxation and enjoyment!

The Living by Water Project invites you to join with other Canadians, accept the Shoreline Action Challenge and complete one of our two Shoreline Action Checklists to help protect and restore shorelines. Choose from the shoreline resident or shoreline visitor checklist. You’ll receive a Shoreline Ambassador certificate in recognition of your efforts. Your actions do make a difference!

The checklists contain easy actions that you can carry out to help care for shorelines – in your home, along the shoreline, and on the water. Let us know what you are already doing and what things you’ll try by simply checking the "I’m doing" or "I will" box next to the appropriate action on the Shoreline Action Checklist.

The goal of the challenge is for 200,000 Canadians to become Shoreline Ambassadors and to protect and restore 3000 km of shoreline by 2005. To find out how we’re doing click here.

We invite you to challenge your community group, friends, neighbours and colleagues to follow your lead and make a similar commitment to improving water quality!
