3. Network Goals

There are three goals for the national network of marine protected areas; the first one is the primary goal, the other two are secondary:

  1. To provide long-term protection of marine biodiversity, ecosystem function and special natural features.
  2. To support the conservation and management of Canada's living marine resources and their habitats, and the socio-economic values and ecosystem services they provide.
  3. To enhance public awareness and appreciation of Canada's marine environments and rich maritime history and culture.
