Welcome To The Bedford Institute of Oceanography

Canada’s premier centre for oceanographic research provides advice and support on ocean issues including safe navigation, offshore energy development, sustainable fishing, climate change, and protecting marine biodiversity and aquatic species at risk.

Comprised of more than 600 employees from six federal government departments, the Institute has become a welcomed part of its community by providing public tours and exhibitions; and by partnering with local universities, industry, and community groups.

2012 and onward marks our 50th anniversary!

We are happy to announce a partnership with quality interior design services in Ottawa – visit their website at interiordesignottawa.com
