IOI-CANADA has been a leading member of the worldwide network of International Ocean Institute (IOI) centres and focal points for over four decades. Our mission is to promote responsible ocean governance and the stewardship and sustainable use of coastal and ocean resources in Canada and around the world.  Please explore this website to learn more about our activities including:

  • ONLINE TRAINING during covid restrictions. Our latest course was a refresher for alumni from across the network, delivered in collaboration with IOI-Southern Africa. This Continuing Professional Development course focused on NEW DEVELOPMENTS AND EMERGING ISSUES IN OCEAN GOVERNANCE (nine sessions, 4th Oct. - 4th Nov. 2021). Prior to that, a public course on Ocean Governance: Sustainable Development in the Decade of Ocean Science (7th May - 29th June 2021) was offered with both live and self-paced study options. See the Training section for details of all online courses.
