About The Guide:

    In order for a beach to be awarded a Blue Flag, it must meet strict criteria in the areas of Water Quality, Environmental Management, Environmental Education and Safety & Services.

    This guide provides operators of current and potential future Canadian Blue Flag beaches with further details about each of the 33 criteria and examples of how they can be met.
