Our Programs

Canoe Currents

The CaNOE Currents program is looking for youth (individuals under the age of 30) to promote ocean literacy across Canada by creating ocean educational content such as a blog post, Tik Tok, or videos. The educational content will be featured on the CaNOE website and social media channels.

Our Programs

Feature Friday

Feature Friday is a CaNOE networking program that features and shares the passion from an ocean-loving organization or individual who is doing amazing work in the realm of ocean education or marine conservation. We try to feature a diverse array of organizations or individuals across the country, and sometimes international organizations are featured as well!

Our Programs

Ocean Education Wednesday

Ocean Education Wednesday fits perfectly within any Biology, Natural Science or General Science classroom at the junior or high school level and the material has been created not only to allow an informal connection to current curriculum outcomes but is written to stimulate a passion for the many different aspects of ocean literacy.
