The OceanCanada Partnership
The OceanCanada Partnership is an 8-year research initiative (2014-2022) funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The Partnership is comprised of 22 formal research partners, including universities from coast to coast, community organizations and Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
Charting a Sustainable Future for Oceans in Canada
This volume aims to help Canadian society understand, prepare and plan for the challenges that lie ahead for our oceans and our coasts. The contributions from over 50 co-authors across 22 formal partners offer insights that reflect a rich history of scholarship and action across our three oceans and coasts, as well as a direct recognition that the future of our oceans is fundamentally linked to reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, partners and nations.
The OceanCanada Partnership was originally funded to run until 2020, but we will continue to produce a yearly newsletter keeping you updated as to the progress and impact of our work.
