The Opportunity


Today, Canada derives relatively less economic benefit from the ocean than other nations. There is tremendous potential to better leverage science and technology in Canada’s ocean sectors and to build a digitally-powered, knowledge-based ocean economy.

The Ocean Supercluster is an industry-led collaboration that will build Canada’s ocean economy into one of the country’s most significant and sustainable value-creating economic segments. It is a national undertaking, with investment from companies across Canada, partnerships with post-secondary institutions, indigenous groups, and international partners.

The partnership spans the ocean economy, including fisheries, aquaculture, oil and gas, marine bio products, transportation, defence, marine renewables, and ocean technology. Through the Ocean Supercluster, companies are collaborating to define a shared innovation roadmap based on common challenges and requirements.
