With the world’s longest coastline, Canada’s ocean jurisdiction spans across three oceans which support some of the most abundant and diverse marine ecosystems on earth. A complex array of social, economic and environmental changes are affecting our oceans and those who depend on it. Over seven million people live along Canada's coastline, but all Canadians are dependent on the health of our oceans.

This student-led conference aims to bring together people and research from the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic regions of Canada to increase awareness of Canadian's connections to our oceans.

On Friday October 2nd, conservation photographer and executive director of SeaLegacy, Cristina Mittermeier, joins us at the Halifax Central Library for her free public lecture Water’s Edge: 25 years on the frontline of conservation.
