An Ocean of Opportunity

With the longest coastline and the fourth largest ocean territory in the world, the opportunity to grow Canada’s ocean economy is significant. The OECD anticipates, that by 2030, the world's ocean economy will double to $3 Trillion USD, outpacing the general global economy by a factor of nearly 20%.

The time to invest and collaborate is now.

Canada’s ocean economy employs approximately 350,000 Canadians and contributes over $36 billion to our GDP. By leveraging our advancing ocean capabilities, the private sector's co-investment with the federal government in the Ocean Supercluster positions Canada to become a global leader in the knowledge-based ocean economy – and we’re only just getting started!

DRIVING SUSTAINABLE OCEAN GROWTH THROUGH COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION

Canada’s Ocean Supercluster (OSC or Ocean Supercluster) is the first cross sectorial initiative of its kind, which includes the shared vision of leaders in fisheries, aquaculture, offshore resources, shipping, defense, marine renewables and ocean tech. By facilitating the growth of these industries through an interconnected cluster, we’re positioning Canada to be the leader in sustainable ocean innovation.

After less than a year in operation, we are already witnessing a change in behavior - new relationships, new ideas, old ideas re-visited – all with a different mindset and it’s encouraging to watch our supercluster take shape and grow!
