Our volunteers are trained in water quality knowledge and ways to keep beaches clean. They participate in shoreline cleanups and help to keep the public informed about local water quality advisories. Sign up today!
Swim Guide is a website and smartphone app for iPhone® and Android. It helps you easily find your closest beaches, know at a glance which ones are clean for swimming, and share your love of beaches with friends and family.
Your donations help us to improve our programs and work with authorities to safeguard public access to swimmable, drinkable, and fishable water in B.C. Every dollar counts!
We monitor the water quality at various beaches in Vancouver every week! Find out how we have expanded our monitoring program.

Six new ambassadors joined the Swim Drink Fish family in September at our Swim Drink Fish Gala Vancouver 2019. The “Swim Drink Fish Ambassadors” were formally recognized and welcomed to the circle by two of our previous ambassadors, Kevin Lowe and Karen Percy Lowe. We are grateful for their work and dedication to our natural world and we are excited to celebrate them.

I am so very pleased to join the Fraser Riverkeeper team here in Vancouver as the new Program Manager. My predecessor, Molly O’Ray, has left some exceptionally large shoes to fill, but I am beyond thrilled to continue her work building a swimmable, drinkable, fishable future across Western Canada.

Our summer at Swim Drink Fish was rich with some amazing experiences shared with some even more amazing people! We love having volunteers groups come explore their appreciation of water, develop their water literacy, and get involved as citizen scientists.
