Ocean Week Canada

June 1-9, 2024

Ocean Week Canada is 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 recognize 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.


OWC 2023: partnership in action

Ocean Week Canada 2023 took place June 2-11, with nearly 200 events taking place across the country. Building on the widespread success of the inaugural Ocean Week Canada launched in June 2022, this year we introduced ‘regional hubs’ in 6 major cities and provided over $60,000 in funds for community-led events.
