The Ocean Frontier Institute is spearheading major research programs across the North Atlantic, and, with the Hakai Institute, in the process of framing an initiative for a North Atlantic Ocean Decade Collaborative Centre.

We welcome feedback and dialogue from the Canadian ocean community as to how these initiatives can best serve the ocean research community.

In a 90-minute session, we will present an overview of current plans and initiatives and open the discussion into a brief workshopping session to build connectivity and support future engagement.
