Ocean Technology and
Arctic Opportunities Branch

The Ocean Technology and Arctic Opportunities Branch works to advance the province's ocean technology cluster through improved business supports, strengthening ties between institutions and industry, and developing new marketing approaches for select target markets. BTCRD oversees the Provincial Government's Arctic Opportunities Initiative, and supports positioning the province as the pathway to the Arctic as well as an ideal staging ground for Arctic-related economic activities. This initiative includes building local knowledge and capacity, creating international awareness about the province's Arctic expertise and capabilities; and, promoting research, collaboration, and fostering partnerships among stakeholders and other northern jurisdictions.
