About us

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.

OUR MISSION: To enable the sustainable growth of Canada’s ocean economy by building an ecosystem in which all members are well-connected and have the capacity and capability to drive digital innovation.

OUR VISION: Realize the potential of Canada’s ocean economy to establish and grow companies, achieve commercial outcomes, and engage in cross-sectoral collaboration.

Achievements

DRIVING INNOVATION IN CANADA'S OCEAN ECONOMY

The federal government and private sector's co-investment in the Ocean Supercluster positions Canada to become a global leader in the knowledge-based ocean economy.

Ocean resources are one of Canada's most significant potential advantages, with the longest coastline and the fourth largest ocean territory in the world. The Ocean Supercluster will foster new partnerships with industry, post-secondary, government, and other partners, including indigenous communities, to accelerate innovation and commercialization and to drive increased sustainable economic growth from our oceans.
