Event Title

Coastal and indigenous community access to marine resources in Canada

Presentation Abstract

Access to marine resources and the ocean is important for the well-being of coastal communities. Sustained access is also fundamental to maintaining local presence, traditional knowledge, management and response capacity. Yet, along the Pacific Coast of Canada, this access is being threatened by a variety of activities that are increasing competition in the marine environment. This presentation will draw insights from a meeting of the Access Working Group of the OceanCanada Partnership in June 2017 and a series of qualitative interviews from several case studies to examine how coastal and Indigenous community access to marine resources and the ocean is changing on the Pacific Coast of Canada. It will also explore the reasons that access is changing and the impacts that this is having for coastal and Indigenous communities. In conclusion, this presentation will discuss solutions for how access considerations can be better integrated into decisions related to the ocean and coast.
