Canada has a history of being a leader in ocean sciences and a steward of the seas. With the longest coastline in the world - stretching across three oceans, the Arctic, Pacific and Atlantic - we are an ocean rich country and for that and many other reasons we celebrate World Oceans Day.
In 1992, at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, the United Nations brought the countries of the world together to reevaluate economic development and bring to light the massive issue of natural resource depletion and the alarming rate of global pollution. In Rio, the Canadian Government, proposed the idea of World Oceans Day - and laid the foundation for environmental initiatives and collaborations focused on the globe’s marine resources.
Together with the World Ocean Network and the Ocean Project, Canada continued to develop the proposal and over the next decade onboarded other countries to the idea - and circulated a petition urging the United Nations to officially recognize World Oceans Day on June 8th each year.
