Ocean Networks Canada receives $12.6M

543 Ocean Networks Canada


The Government of Canada has provided Oceans Network Canada (ONC), a national network of ocean observation systems based at the University of Victoria (UVic), with $12.6 million in funding over the next four years.  The funds will build on ONC’s ocean noise monitoring program and will expand its monitoring of sea surface currents in Pacific waters. This data will help inform our efforts to protect the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale and will help make our oceans safer by improving navigation and emergency response. The announcement was made with the official opening of the new Ocean-Climate building at UVic’s Queenswood campus where ONC is housed with over 200 researchers, scientists and students.
