Canada's Ocean Supercluster
Based in Atlantic Canada, the Ocean Supercluster will tap the combined strengths of the industries operating in Canada's oceans, including marine renewable energy, fisheries, aquaculture, oil and gas, defence, shipbuilding, transportation and ocean technology. By harnessing emerging technologies, this Supercluster will digitize and optimize marine operations, maximize sustainable approaches to resources, and increase safety for those operating in marine environments.
Regional concentration: Atlantic Canada
Technology focus: Digital sensors and monitoring, autonomous marine vehicles, energy generation, automation, marine biotechnology and marine engineering technologies
Expected economic impact
|GDP impact over 10 years (in billions)||Job creation over 10 years|
|More than $14 billion||More than 3,000 jobs|
