Oceana Canada

Returning our oceans to health and abundance

Oceana Canada is an independent charity dedicated to restoring Canadian oceans to be as rich and healthy as they once were. As part of the largest global organization focused solely on ocean conservation, Oceana Canada works to bring attention to the most pressing issues facing our oceans, working with civil society, academics, fishers, Indigenous Peoples and the government to return Canada’s formerly vibrant oceans to health and abundance.

In 2018, Oceana Canada enlisted our support to plan and execute ongoing national media relations efforts to build their public profile, help spread the word about the importance of protecting our oceans, and to help amplify their lobbying and conservation work across Canada.

As we enter our fourth year working together, we have executed several national campaigns targeting English- and French-language media, as well as proactive and reactive media relations on issues and activities central to Oceana Canada’s mandate. Our work has helped establish deep relationships with media across Canada, all while amplifying their rallying cry to protect and restore our oceans.
