Chamber of Shipping > Blog > News > Government > BC funds coastal clean up

New projects funded by the Province of British Columbia in partnership with coastal communities and Indigenous Peoples will clean as much as 1,000 kilometres of BC’s coastline, remove as many as 30 derelict vessels and support local jobs.  An additional $3.8 million from the Clean Coast, Clean Waters Initiative Fund will be used this summer to tackle the cleanup and removal of polluting marine debris, and create 440 jobs in coastal and Indigenous communities. Funding will go to Coastal Restoration Society, Ocean Legacy Foundation and Misty Isles Economic Development Society.
