We share clear and accessible knowledge to inform decisions by governments, industry, and the public on issues that impact our shared waters.

We convene all voices in open and respectful dialogue on marine shipping issues.

We strive to connect people with different perspectives to create transformative impact for future generations.

We create capacity sharing opportunities and work experiences for a more inclusive marine industry.

Committed to reconciliation

Clear Seas recognizes the unique rights of Indigenous Peoples – including First Nations, Inuit and Métis – in Canada, as protected under Section 35 of the Canadian Constitution and as defined in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We strive to build respectful relationships and actively involve Indigenous communities in carrying out our mission to identify marine shipping issues and share knowledge for sustainable marine  shipping.

Clear Seas’ head office is located on the unceded and shared territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations in Vancouver, BC. Our work takes place across Canada on the treatied and unceded lands and waters of First Nations and Inuit peoples.
