Canada's Ocean Strategy

Canada’s Oceans Act and Oceans Strategy mandate Fisheries and Oceans Canada to perform integrated coastal management. In some cases, Fisheries and Oceans Canada has worked together with the Province of B.C. to collaborate on integrated coastal plans. The Central Coast Land and Resource Management Plan is an example of this collaboration.

Integrated Management

Background paper on integrated ocean management in Canada prepared by the DFO Oceans Program for the 2003 OMRN National Conference.

SFU Centre for Coastal Studies

The Simon Fraser University Centre for Coastal Studies performs research about coastal resources and coastal planning. Proceedings of an April 2003 conference about coastal planning will soon be posted on their website.

Community-based Monitoring

One way for communities to become involved in coastal planning is through community-based monitoring and mapping of our resources. The Shorekeepers program provides tools for communities to map and monitor shoreline habitats. A Ucluelet chapter has recently been established. The Ocean Management Research Network’s Integrated Management Node includes a working group on this topic. Richard Martell has written a thesis that asks hard questions about community-based monitoring in the Long Point Biosphere Reserve, and how it can support sustainable development. The UBC Fisheries Centre has published a report on the use of volunteer divers for marine research and monitoring.

Community Mapping Network

The Community Mapping Network provides an opportunity for community groups to access maps of various coastal resources and activities, as well as to add our own information to those maps. The Living Oceans Society also provides some coastal resource maps for Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds.
