Abandoned boats don’t belong in our waters


Abandoning your boat is illegal in Canada.

It’s harmful to our coastal communities, to navigation, and to the environment.

If your boat has reached the end of its life, don’t abandon ship.

Consider disposing of it at a local recycling facility or landfill.

And if you spot one, report it to the Canadian Coast Guard.

Be part of the solution and help keep our waterways safe.
