Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup
YVR is the B.C. Provincial sponsor of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Canadians gather from coast to coast for this cleanup event and YVR is proud to participate at our own clean up site right here at home. Come out and join Vancouver Airport Authority each September at Iona Beach, on YVR's Sea Island home for the kick-off event of the annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
How to participate
To find out more details on how you can join the YVR cleanup, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or regsiter your participation directly at www.shorelinecleanup.ca. Registration opens approximately one month in advance of the event. Plan to use transit where possible, free shuttle buses will run from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. between Templeton Canada Line Station and Iona Beach for participants.
If you're unable to make it out to Sea Island in Richmond for the kick-off event, look for a cleanup in your local community.
