New Congress dates : 1-8 September 2022

IMPAC5 is where we will come together and take a stand to protect the ocean.

  • Demonstrate global support for marine conservation efforts such as networks of marine protected areas1 and marine spatial planning.
  • Provide an opportunity to celebrate and galvanize global cooperation in marine conservation.
  • Provide an opportunity for countries to come together to develop a roadmap to a post-2020 biodiversity framework for ocean conservation.
  • Showcase the important role of marine protected areas in addressing the climate crisis and conserving biodiversity in a post-pandemic world.
  • Share what is uniquely Canadian: our vast marine and coastal environment, the rich diversity of local and Indigenous peoples and coastal cultures, our collective efforts, and our world-class ocean science and management regime.
