The Nautical Institute’s BC Branch (NIBC) will host the latest iteration of a very successful conference series at the Marriott Inner Harbour Hotel in Victoria, 1-3 May 2024. The theme this year is: “MARITIME ARCTIC: Best Practice, Best Technology, Best People.”  This is a topic with many levels of resonance within the Canadian and global maritime communities. Post-COVID, and in response to the continuing effects of climate change, traffic is again increasing in the Arctic. In Canada, this takes place against a backdrop of augmented environmental concern, advancing maritime regulation, and complexities of resource development in austere locations. Globally, commercial shipping looks warily at the prospects for more economical routes, while cruise-lines and adventurers seek what they imagine are the last locations of untouched natural splendor. And, at the same time, the north is regaining prominence in calculations of geostrategic advantage and competition/conflict. All this makes the conference subject more topical than ever.  Further details on the conference  agenda and speakers, as well as registration, is available at:
