A Deeper Dive Podcast

When we look at some of the world’s biggest challenges and where Canada has significant opportunities, ocean is not only a space we know, it’s a space we can lead. The OSC is inviting those who participate in the ocean economy and all those interested in it to take a deeper dive into some incredible and innovative ocean projects underway in Canada and the people making it happen. The bi-weekly podcast will feature a variety of hosts from the OSC team as we move from each episode to the next with guests from announced Ocean Supercluster projects, allowing us to check in with them and hear about the challenges they are solving and the work they are doing to help drive sustainable, digital and inclusive growth in ocean.
