Marine and Inland Waters Forum 


June 1st 12:30 PM to 4:00 PM
Toronto, Virtual

There are a multitude of activities happening across the Canadian Blue Economy addressing important economic, environmental, or cultural concerns. Unfortunately, many of these activities occur in isolation, robbing us of the ability to address issues at a more holistic level. There is one thing that can be used to connect them all and reveal the big picture. That thing is location.

During this event, you will see how leaders in the Blue Economy are using location information as a connector to drive important initiatives, understand complex information, and enable better stewardship of our oceans and inland waters.
