Canada’s Oceans Act

Bill C-55, an Act to amend the Oceans Act and the Canada Petroleum Resources Act.


Our oceans are home to an abundance of marine life.

They support thousands of middle class Canadian jobs.

But our oceans face urgent threats from pollution and climate change.

The Government of Canada is acting now.

We’re changing our laws.

To better protect marine ecosystems at risk.

Helping them remain strong and healthy.

For the benefit of future generations.
