Working toward an Oil-Free Coast

One of the greatest threats to habitat quality on the BC coast is increased oil transport through these waters. The threat of harm from diluted bitumen spills and increased vessel traffic are the motivation for our work. Raincoast has worked for more than ten years against oil expansion projects in BC, through on-the-ground research, participation as intervenors in CEAA and NEB review processes, legal action in the courts, and grassroots activism.  The projects in our efforts for an Oil-Free Coast are listed below.
