Looking for ways to celebrate Ocean Week Canada from home?

There is so much incredible Canadian content out there to inspire, inform, and engage all ages around the ocean and waterways. Checking in with local communities and organizations can be a great way to get started, but you can also check out some of the unique resources the Ocean Week Canada team has found!

These activities can help to explore ocean, freshwater, and climate connections, and they showcase cool work being done from coast to coast to coast, and everywhere in between.

These activities are:

  • COVID-friendly
  • Short/achievable in less than a day
  • Free or low cost (for potential materials)
  • A mix of English-only and English-French bilingual resources
  • Made in Canada!
