The Canadian Ocean Literacy Map and Database are designed to connect Canadians to ocean literacy initiatives, programs, events, opportunities, stories, and resources from coast to coast to coast. The platform was built and initially populated using data compiled during the Understanding Ocean Literacy in Canada study (2019-2020). It represents an important resource for Canada’s growing ocean literacy community of practice.

As ocean literacy in Canada is advanced over the course of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), the Map and Database will evolve to reflect this growth.

Use the Map’s filters and zoom functions and select coloured icons to reveal detailed information about each initiative. You can also search and browse ocean literacy initiatives directly in the Database below.

Know of an ocean literacy-related initiative that we should add to the Map? Whether it is led by your organization, institution, community, or YOU, we want to hear about it! Fill out the short form here to give us the details. Unsure if an initiative is a good fit for the Map? Fill out the form anyway or get in touch directly with the COLC team!
