Ocean Bridge connects Canadian youth from coast to coast to coast empowering them to make a difference towards ocean conservation. Each year 40 youth (ages 18-30) form a national team engaged in co-creating and delivering service projects for their home communities and two immersive expeditions addressing Ocean Health and Ocean Literacy in Canada.
Ocean Bridge youth are empowered to make a difference towards ocean conservation through three program elements:
- Community & Capacity Building
- Ocean Health Wilderness Expedition
- Ocean Literacy Urban Expedition to Vancouver

Ocean Wise was proud to be represented by a trio of Ocean Bridge youth ambassadors at the 2019 Canadian Parks Conference in Québec City from October 7-10! The team of Marie-Philippe Ouellet, Ariane Marchand and Shawn Gauthier had the chance to connect with other #NatureForAll Youth Champions, discuss the present and future of our parks and brainstorm solutions for bringing the youth voice to the table. See some of the pictures below from their trip – way to go Shawn, MP and Ariane!
