Organized by: The Oceans Research in Canada Alliance

The Oceans Research in Canada Alliance (ORCA) is a community of experts whose goal is to advance the coordination of ocean science and technology in Canada through collaborative, cross-sectoral, efforts. One challenge being addressed by this community is how to bridge the science-policy gap on key ocean issues. Given the magnitude of changes occurring in our oceans, cutting-edge Canadian ocean science has an essential role to play in informing our public policies and regulations in every domain from coastal resilience to public health. Join us and help to identify innovative and collaborative solutions to maximize the uptake of ocean science in Canadian public policy.
