Artificial Reef Society of British Columbia
Who we are
The Artificial Reef Society of British Columbia (ARSBC) is a registered non-profit society based in Vancouver, British Columbia, and is a registered tax-deductible charity in Canada.
Our aim is to create environmentally friendly 'artificial reefs' in British Columbia and around the world by consulting on the conversion and disposal-at-sea of decommissioned vessels. This for the purpose of marine habitat enhancement and protection initiatives and at the same time, to provide a sustainable economic benefit for coastal communities in support eco-adventure scuba dive tourism. Since 1991, the Artificial Reef Society has sunk eight ships and one Boeing 737.
The Society has no paid employees, and consists of a volunteer Board of Directors and hundreds of volunteers from BC, Alberta, and the northwest United States who have worked on our projects.
