Your answers will help us better understand how the pilot was used, what worked well and didn’t, and how the pilot could be improved. The survey will take about six minutes to complete and is available until October 24, 2021 at midnight.

This summer marked the launch of the On Water pilot, to encourage and manage the safe use of non-motorized watercraft in Vancouver’s waters.
From June 1 until September 6, lifeguards supervised four access points at Kitsilano PDF file (327 KB), Spanish Banks PDF file (282 KB), Locarno PDF file (335 KB), and Sunset PDF file (246 KB) swimming beaches to support non-motorized watercraft users in safely launching and using their equipment between the hours of 11:30am and 8:30pm.
Black and white quartered flags and temporary beach signs indicated the designated launch and recovery access areas. Note Access is unregulated outside of these dates, times, and locations.
