Get ready to celebrate Ocean Week Canada! From June 1 to 9, 2024, join Water Rangers and partners from coast to coast in honoring our deep connection to the ocean. As an official partner of Ocean Week Canada, we’re thrilled to announce our mini-grant program, designed to support educators, community groups, organizations, and individuals in organizing events that celebrate our oceanic ties.

What is Ocean Week Canada?

Ocean Week Canada is an annual national celebration held during World Ocean Day (June 8) week. It’s a time to engage in events, learning activities, and community initiatives that highlight the importance of our oceans and their connection to our daily lives. Led by the Canadian Ocean Literacy Coalition (COLC), Ocean Week Canada aims to raise awareness, inspire action, and foster a deeper understanding of ocean issues across the country.
