Collaboration is key to the success of CIOOS. Three Regional Associations (RAs) located in the Pacific, the St. Lawrence, and the Atlantic regions are working to meet the needs of local communities. RAs constitute a network of provincial and territorial governments, indigenous communities, academic institutions, research networks, NGOs, and industry representatives committed to building data infrastructure in collaboration with regional data providers and users. They integrate and organize ocean data, data products, and services that serve regional ocean data needs by managing, disseminating, and ensuring an interoperability of ocean variables.
There are several ways you can contribute to CIOOS. New partners are welcomed, both nationally and internationally. Click on your RA to learn more!
