As an initiative of Swim Drink Fish, Fraser Riverkeeper is dedicated to ensuring the right of all citizens to safely swim, drink, and fish in BC waters.

Find Your Beach

Swim Guide is a free website and mobile app that helps you easily find your closest beaches, know which ones are clean for swimming, and report pollution concerns.

Vancouver Water Monitoring

We monitor the water quality in False Creek year-round, ensuring that Vancouverites have recreational water quality information no matter the season.

Watermark Project

The Watermark Project is a community effort to collect and archive true stories about the ways people interact with water, with the goal of archiving one story from every Canadian household.

To our Fraser Riverkeeper community,

While we are socially isolating across Canada, we are more connected than ever. The Swim Drink Fish movement of water guardians continues to grow. Thanks to social media and our digital tools like Swim Guide and Watermark Project, we have shifted our strategy to connect with our community in new and exciting ways. While we’re all doing our part to stay inside during the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve got some activities that will help you engage with our local waters from home.

I personally have been finding it difficult to practice social distancing, especially with the weather getting warmer in Vancouver and not being able to enjoy my normal spring activities like skiing, hiking, and soaking up the sun with friends.
