The Canada Beach Report is the first report of its kind. It provides Swim Guide, and others in our field, with an understanding of the landscape of beach water quality rules, monitoring practices, and reporting across Canada. The Canada Beach Report will answer these questions for Canadians: Does recreational water quality information exist for the beaches where I swim? Is this information reliable? Is it easily accessible? Is my water swimmable? Is there sufficient information and effective communication about the quality of the water to allow me to protect myself from contact with contaminated recreational water?
