Abstract:

The conservation of Canada's ocean ecosystems is an issue of critical importance. A key tool in this effort is marine protected areas (MPAs). Canada is currently developing a bioregional network approach to MPA establishment. There is great hope that, done well, this new approach will help Canada expand effectively and efficiently its protection of marine ecosystems, which currently amounts to less than 1% of our national ocean territory.

The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for effective networks of MPAs throughout Canada's three oceans. The approach is based on scientific understanding of marine ecosystems and of human interactions with them, integrating knowledge from the biophysical and social sciences. The guidelines also reflect the prominent place of Canada's Aboriginal peoples in the stewardship of our oceans. The guidelines are organized into four thematic categories: ecological criteria; social, cultural and economic considerations; MPAs in context; and governance. Within each category several guidelines are presented, typically with a definition, rationale, and references.
