Registration is open for the 2022 Polar Bear Swim but for the second year in a row it won’t be taking place in English Bay.

The City of Vancouver is encouraging everyone to celebrate at home with the 2022 Polar Bear Dip. While things will look a little different this year, you can still keep this annual tradition alive by joining everyone online with a Digital Dip.

Here is how to participate in the Digital Dip:

  1. On January 1, 2022, fill a tub, kiddie pool, anything with cold water (7°C) and take a cold dip. Get creative!
  2. Share your video and photo online with #VanPolarBearSwim
  3. Register to receive a commemorative certificate
  4. Send your photo or video to to receive a Polar Bear Swim Club button
