MAP RESEARCH


Research Projects

The Marine Affairs Program is home to a research community that participates in significant long-term research projects within Canada, and around the globe. 

Members of our MAP family are affiliated with this community who partner with government, non-profit organizations, and industry partners. Through these research initiatives, MAP Faculty and students gain exposure to real-world issues.
