Blue Flag is a highly respected and recognized international eco-label. [Says who?]
Blue Flags are awarded to beaches and marinas that meet strict criteria for water quality, environmental education, environmental management, and safety and services.
Blue Flags are flying at 16 beaches and 3 marinas in Canada.
As the coordinator of Blue Flag Canada, Environmental Defence works with beach and marina managers, their partners, and community stakeholders to achieve the international Blue Flag award. The Blue Flag International program is managed by the Foundation for Environmental Education, a non-governmental, non-profit organization promoting sustainable development through environmental education.
