Each CZCA conference builds on the previous conferences to advance our understanding and awareness of Canada’s four coastal regimes: Atlantic, Arctic, Pacific and Great Lakes. Each conference has a particular focus on the regime in which it is held, but addresses themes of relevance to all of them. Each conference typically produces a conference statement or declaration summarizing discussions at the conference and articulating what conference participants have agreed are the most important messages to come out of the event. Those outputs are collected together below in one place, as a legacy of the Coastal Zone Canada Association conference series.
