About Canada’s Ocean Supercluster
The sustainable development of our ocean is one of the most important opportunities of our time. Canada’s Ocean Supercluster (OSC) is a catalyst to achieving transformative growth and advancing Canada’s global leadership in the sustainable blue economy.
The OSC is an industry-led, national ocean cluster that brings together startups, scaleups, as well as mature organizations from coast-to-coast-to-coast across the fishery, aquaculture, bioresources, offshore resources, marine renewables, defence, transportation and ocean technology sectors to accelerate the commercialization of leading Canadian ocean solutions that tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges.
To support this growth, the cluster is also focused on the development of a robust ecosystem including more ocean companies starting and scaling, engaged communities to identify challenges and solutions, engaging Indigenous people and under-represented groups, and helping build the well-skilled, diverse workforce needed.
Canada’s Ocean Supercluster is also increasing its presence in emerging and established markets worldwide. The cluster has numerous international strategic partnerships, bringing new collaborative and commercial opportunities to members, while also telling Canada’s ocean story to the world.
