The Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, has announced that Canada has joined the Global Ocean Alliance. The Alliance’s goal is to advocate for the protection of at least 30 per cent of the world’s oceans through the establishment of marine protected areas and other effective area-based marine conservation measures by 2030. Since 2015, the Government of Canada has worked in partnership with provinces and territories, Indigenous peoples, and environmental and industry organizations to increase the protection of our oceans. The Government of Canada is continuing to work toward its target of protecting 25 per cent of marine and coastal areas by 2025, and 30 per cent by 2030.
