The Canada Beach Report provides a comparison of different water quality monitoring programs and practices across Canada, province by province, territory by territory. The report is the first-ever comparative study of Canadian recreational water quality monitoring.
Big change requires lots of hands. One of the reasons water quality monitoring programs are some of the most popular citizen science programs is because people will show up for their beach, their favourite creek, their swimming hole, and fishing spot. They love their waterbodies and they will do what they can to protect them. Science benefits both the work being done to protect and restore swimmable, drinkable, fishable water and increase the information available to the public.
