Oceans Research in Canada Alliance

Oceans Research in Canada Alliance

The Oceans Research in Canada Alliance (ORCA) was established to improve the coordination of ocean science and technology (S&T) in Canada. ORCA brings together Canada's ocean S&T community to increase collective knowledge, align efforts, and forge stronger collaborative ties.

The ORCA Community of Practice is the forum to share information, discuss priority issues, connect with the wider science community, and collaborate on ocean S&T initiatives in Canada. Through open and free membership, ORCA aims to be inclusive and reflect the diversity of Canada’s ocean S&T community.

If you or your organization work in a field related to ocean S&T and would like to better connect and collaborate with the community, then please consider joining ORCA! Membership is free and provides you access to the ORCA Community Platform.

The ORCA Community Platform facilitates coordination and collaboration between members of the Canadian ocean S&T community. It connects members with each other, and is a great resource to support your collaborative work. The Platform includes a community calendar, lists of ocean S&T specialists across sectors, meeting information, a community notice board, links to important resources, etc. If you would like to learn more, check out our mini-training videos.
