Renewing Canada’s World Maritime University Chair Position

The World Maritime University (WMU), a specialized agency of the United Nations, plays a significant role in maritime and ocean education, research, while promoting the role of women in the maritime and ocean sectors. The Government of Canada currently provides support for a Canadian Chair position at the WMU to help Canada influence academic research to align with national interests, including priorities of the Oceans Protection Plan.

Through the next phase of the Oceans Protection Plan, Canada will renew its financial support to the WMU Canadian Chair position to continue to support international marine environmental protection and Canada's coastal and ocean agenda.
