Blue National Occupational Standard

Canada has the longest coastline globally, is surrounded by three oceans, and could be a global leader in the sustainable blue economy (SBE). Despite this potential, Canada is behind many other nations in the share of GDP generated from ocean-related industries at 1 percent, compared to an average of 2–5 percent across member countries of the OECD. In Norway, a leader in the ocean sector, it is 25 percent.
