Life’s a Beach Contest – 2016 Winners

We’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Life’s a Beach Photo Contest, hosted by our Blue Flag Canada program. For the contest, we asked Canadians to share with us their best images of what they love about their favourite Canadian beach—such as the sun, surf, sand, or people having fun. And they did! We received hundreds of entries from across the country.

Thanks to everyone who entered and congrats to the winners!
