The Artificial Reef Society of British Columbia (ARSBC) is a registered non-profit society in the Province of British Columbia, and a registered tax-deductible charity in Canada.
The Society has no paid employees and consists of a volunteer Board of seven Directors, and hundreds of volunteers from BC, Alberta, and the north-west United States, who have worked on our projects.
The Artificial Reef Society of British Columbia (ARSBC) creates and promotes artificial reefs for use by SCUBA divers as a means to:
* Promote economic activity in the vicinity of artificial reef sites;
* Promote the technologies and procedures required to establish safe and environmentally-friendly artificial reefs;
* Promote the use of artificial reefs as a means to minimise the impact of recreational SCUBA divers on historical wreck sites and other ecologically-sensitive dive sites;
* Monitor developments of all our artificial reefs for environmental impact and diver safety.
