Recognizing World Oceans Day

It’s World Oceans Day and we’re joining the global community to celebrate this year’s theme Planet Ocean: tides are changing.

The Chamber of Shipping and its members are committed to ensuring that maritime trade is environmentally sustainable, including minimizing impacts to oceans. We know the oceans are vital for sustaining life on this planet, and with shipping accounting for 90 per cent of goods transported around the world, the industry supports providing the necessities of life – especially to remote communities in Canada.

We look forward to continued collaboration with our partners, including Indigenous nations, to support Canada’s marine conservation efforts aimed at protecting 30 per cent of the nation’s lands and waters by 2030.
