Contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
In many ways, Waterkeeper groups in Canada are working towards a future where we can all safely swim, drink and fish. Here are some of our accomplishments to date:
- 140,000 fewer plastic water bottles sold and landfilled in the Ottawa area
- Hundreds of beaches monitored for contaminants coast to coast
- Gates opened on the Petitcodiac River to restore fish populations after 40 years of habitat destruction.
- Over 50 formal submissions prepared on important local, provincial and federal water issues from British Columbia to Newfoundland.
- At least 100 law students mentored in Environmental Law and water justice
- Thousands of kilometres of Canadian waterways patrolled and monitored for pollution
- Worked with hundreds of communities on water issues from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean and everything in between.
- Got fish kills in Lake Ontario reduced by millions of fish, eggs and larvae every year.
- Stopped major polluters from contaminating your water in nine of Canada's major watersheds.
