Three OceanCanada conferences have taken place. Conferences in Vancouver (2016) and Halifax (2018), have on both occasions brought together more than 60 researchers, students and post-doctoral fellows, advisory board members, community and institutional partners to take stock of our activities and work towards an integrated research agenda. Through a series of panels and group discussions, round tables and workshops, the conference delegates identified the emerging threats, challenges, and opportunities facing Canada’s oceans and coastal communities, and began the difficult task of synthesizing research priorities. Below you can select a conference to view agendas and presentations.
