Swim Drink Fish initiatives are active in 171 communities in 11 countries.

Swim Drink Fish's apps and programs connect communities with the water and with other people. We teach communities to monitor the health of their water. Swim Drink Fish advocates for the protection and restoration of the places we love. Swim Drink Fish focuses on water, because all communities need swimmable, drinkable, fishable water to thrive. Swim Drink Fish empowers people, because it takes a community to protect water.

Swim Drink Fish is committed to building relationships and interconnectedness with Indigenous communities through engagement and partnership. Swim Drink Fish's work endeavours to support Indigenous rights to sovereignty, self-determination, and free access to swimmable, drinkable, fishable water for everyone. Swim Drink Fish's employees and partners come from many different cultural, linguistic, and national backgrounds.

As a volunteer-led group, the Swim Drink Fish vision of creating swimmable, drinkable, fishable water for everyone started with people. It’s this vision that has connected people to the water’s edge and given communities access to their local waters.

About Artists for Water
Proceeds from Artists for Water help create swimmable, drinkable, fishable water for everyone.

Artists for Water is a national art auction that raises funds in support of Swim Drink Fish.

Over the past 10 years, Canadian artists have donated over 250 works of art to our auctions, raising over 3.5 million dollars. As Swim Drink Fish has grown and evolved over the years, artists have become guides for exploring our vision of a world where communities can swim in their local waters without risking their health, drink the water flowing from their taps without fear of illness, and where fish and wildlife thrive in their natural environment.

Thank you for your support of this art event! I hope to see you at the Gala Art Party on May 16th...
