Blue Flags For Toronto Beaches

The Blue Flag is a certification by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) that a beach or marina meets its stringent standards. The awards are announced yearly on 5 June for Europe, Canada, Morocco, Tunisia and other countries in a similar geographic location, and on 1 November for the Caribbean, New Zealand, South Africa and other countries in the southern hemisphere.

“These awards are the result of the great work done by beach operators and countless community groups who recognize the importance of protecting their beach and marina,” said Sarah Winterton, Director of Strategic Partnerships for Environmental Defence, the organization that runs the Blue Flag program in Canada. “Everyone involved in the Blue Flag program really deserves recognition for their efforts and we congratulate them all on their achievement.”

  • Bluffer’s
