Description:

Canada’s Ocean Supercluster is a private sector-led partnership with the federal government, concentrated in Atlantic Canada, that brings companies together to foster collaborative innovation, sustainability and modernization across Canada’s ocean sectors. This supercluster spans the ocean economy, including fishing, oil and gas, shipping, aquaculture, shipbuilding, and defence, together with emerging sectors like marine renewable energy, advanced ocean technology, offshore aquaculture, and marine bio-products. The Ocean Supercluster will work with its members to invest in developing and attracting talent, improving supply chain opportunities, and to foster more ocean start-ups in the ocean innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem and realize Canada’s ocean potential. Canada’s Ocean Supercluster is growing the ocean economy in a way that has never been done before, where leaders in fisheries, aquaculture, defence, offshore resources, marine renewables, bioresources, shipping, and ocean technology are coming together to develop and commercialize solutions to shared ocean challenges, while advancing Canada’s position as a global leader in ocean.
