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.
