Ocean Week Canada

June 3-12, 2022

From June 3 to 12, 2022, we celebrated Ocean Week Canada! It’s an annual national celebration of ocean events, learning, and engagement held during the week of World Ocean Day (June 8). Through these events and learning activities, we’re recognizing the important role the ocean plays in our everyday lives and how local waterways connect us all with the ocean. Help us raise public awareness and celebrate this connection to coastal areas, the ocean, and watersheds in Canada. Together, we can inspire action to ensure a healthy ocean for future generations.


Ocean Festival

June - September, 2022

We’re not just celebrating for a week this year! In 2022, Ocean Week Canada kicked off a summer-long Ocean Festival that laid a foundation of ocean awareness as Canada gears up to host the Fifth International Marine Protected Areas Congress (IMPAC5) in Vancouver. IMPAC5 is a global forum that brings together ocean conservation professionals and officials to inform, inspire, and act on Marine Protected Areas. Check back often to find out how to make the most of your Ocean Festival experience with updates on events, important dates, and ways to get involved. Through understanding, participating in, and celebrating marine conservation efforts, we can meet our goal of protecting 30% of Canada’s ocean waters by 2030.
