Surfrider Foundation Canada

What is Surfrider Foundation Canada

Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the ocean, beaches, and waves through a powerful activist network. Surfrider operates in the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, Japan, Morocco, Senegal and Argentina.

Surfrider Foundation Canada (SFC) has three chapters in British Columbia: the Vancouver Chapter, the South Vancouver Island Chapter based in Victoria, and the Pacific Rim Chapter based in Tofino and Ucluelet. SFC is also opening an Atlantic Chapter in January, 2024, and is looking forward to opening new chapters in areas like the Great Lakes.

Surfrider leads programs and campaigns for clean water, beach access, coastal preservation, ocean protection and plastic pollution. Currently, the national Foam Free Waters campaign is working to get polystyrene banned from aquatic infrastructure in Canada.
