About SeaBlue Canada
SeaBlue Canada is a joint project of seven of Canada’s most active and well- respected NGOs. We work together to hold the Government of Canada to account on ambitious, equitable and impactful marine protection.
SeaBlue Canada was instrumental in successfully raising Government ambition to exceed the 10 per cent target set for 2020, resulting in close to 14 per cent protection of Canada’s marine environment.
With 2020 behind us, our focus is to drive forward ambitious and meaningful marine protection on the path to 25 by 25, and 30 by 30. We know that we are greater than the sum of our parts.
Supported by Budget 2021 in May and following on the federal election of September 2021, Canada has indicated two vital pieces in meeting its stated protected area targets – funding and political will.
SeaBlue has three overarching goals that will be met collectively and through the work of individual member organizations.
With combined reach, networks and expertise, SeaBlue works collaboratively to ensure Canada puts forward strong leadership in international initiatives and commitments and that Canada’s hosting role of the upcoming 5th International Marine Protected Area Congress becomes a milestone for announcements and progress on meaningful marine protection.
