In 2022, volunteers coordinated 1,604 cleanups and collected 22,361 kg of litter on 2,438.759 km of Canadian shoreline.


COVID-19: Cleanups look different in 2022 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 to keep you and your community safe.

Ocean Wise Shoreline Cleanup is a  conservation program that provides Canadians across the country 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.
