27 beaches and nine marinas across Canada have received Blue Flag eco-certification. This flag represents the internationally recognized gold-standard for water quality environmental management and education, safety, and amenities. Blue Flag Program Manager with Environmental Defence Kelsey Scarfone explains how the world known certification breaks down its criteria:
When a beach or Marina is interested in earning a Blue Flag, they send in their application into Blue Flag Canada who then sends it to a national jury of experts. Locally, Outlet Beach at Sandbanks Provincial Park has received this high standard.
