A Co-ordinated Canadian approach to

Ocean Research

The Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR) is a national Network of Centres of Excellence linking top marine researchers and highly qualified personnel across Canada with partner organizations and communities. MEOPAR funds leading-edge research, overcomes barriers to collaborative research and helps to train the next generation of marine professionals.

Addressing Canada’s Marine Challenges


MEOPAR’s strength lies in its ability to connect and collaborate. Our network brings together people and perspectives—spanning regions and disciplines—with the shared goal of enhancing Canada’s research capacity in a changing marine environment.
