About the Workshop 

This workshop is the first of a series aimed at identifying gaps in shipping risk knowledge by:

  • Looking at Canadian initiatives and information resources relating to shipping risk
  • Outlining a common risk framework for marine shipping 
  • Mapping initiatives and resources to a risk framework

This two-hour long event encourages full participation by delegates and will take place in two phases. The workshop’s hosts will first outline the goals of the session and highlight shipping risk initiatives undertaken by academic researchers (MEOPAR), Transport Canada and Clear Seas. Participants will then be invited to join small breakout group discussions focused on identifying shipping risk initiatives in Canada, information resources, risk frameworks and common risk-related terminology. This event is free and open to all people and organizations working in or conducting research on shipping risk.


  • Paul Blomerus, Clear Seas
