Surfrider Foundation's network extends beyond the USA, to Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, and Latin America. While chapters are guided by the overall Surfrider Foundation mission, they apply Surfrider tools and methodologies in creative ways to address issues of importance to their local communities.
Surfrider Foundation Canada has three chapters in British Columbia: the Vancouver Chapter, the Vancouver Island Chapter based in Victoria, and the Pacific Rim chapter based in Tofino and Ucluelet.
Surfrider has built a dedicated network in British Columbia of coastal defenders who transform their passion for our coast into lasting protection. We are fortunate to live in a place where passion for protection is in our blood. Our communities are dominated by guardians including: First Nations, grassroots environmentalists and scientists as well as ocean lovers, surfers, beach walkers, and fishing enthusiasts. Bridging local knowledge together with national experts in law, policy and science, Surfrider is one of many lines of defence on the BC coast.
