Good news for swimmers and sailors: more Canadian beaches and marinas certified as clean and sustainable. That includes the Halifax Waterfront Marina which is once again a Blue Flag certified and has achieved this designation since 2012!
This summer, Canadians can visit 26 beaches and seven marinas across the country, which have received the prestigious international Blue Flag award.
To receive a Blue Flag, beaches and marinas must meet high international standards in water quality, environmental management, environmental education, and safety and services. The Blue Flag is administered in Canada by Environmental Defence and is managed internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). More than 4,000 beaches and marinas in 49 countries fly the Blue Flag.
