 Canada’s Oceans:
Research, Management & the Human Dimension
October 24 to October 27, 2007
Desmarais Multidisciplinary Building
(new University of Ottawa School of Management Building)
Ottawa, Ontario

The objective of the OMRN 2007 National Conference is to learn about research and policy affecting our oceans. This goal is reflected in the title of all of the OMRN's Conferences - Canada's Oceans: Research, Management and the Human Dimension. The title captures the recognized need to include insights from studies of the human dimension, alongside the natural sciences, in ocean policy and management and in implementing the Oceans Act, Canada's Ocean Strategy and the Oceans Action Plan. The 2007 National Conference will place a particular emphasis on four themes:

  • Oceans Agenda Implementation
  • Canada's North and Arctic Ocean
  • Coastal Communities and Ocean Management
  • Environmental Impacts and Climate Change

If you have a question, or a specific topic you would like to have explored at the conference, please send your suggestions to the OMRN Network Secretariat at omrn-rrgo@management.uottawa.ca.
