Oceans support healthy coastal communities, people and economies. Canadians want and expect them to be clean, thriving and resilient. Over the past decade, we've seen dramatic reductions in protection of Canada's coasts.

Your support helped put these issues on the prime minister's desk. More than 14,000 Canadians signed a petition calling on Justin Trudeau and members of his cabinet to protect 10 per cent of Canada's oceans by 2020 — to safeguard wild salmon, ban tankers on B.C.'s north coast and restore habitat protections cut by the previous government.
