Canada’s Ocean Supercluster CEO Keynotes Island Summit


Opportunities for Canada’s Oceans

Kendra MacDonald is the CEO of Canada’s Ocean Supercluster responsible for driving innovation and growth in the ocean economy.

Together with a team working across six cities in Atlantic Canada, Kendra is focused on changing the culture of doing business in the ocean, increasing collaboration across ocean sectors and Canada’s global reach.

VIEA is excited to announce Kendra MacDonald as a keynote speaker at the upcoming virtual State of the Island Economic Summit, October 27-29!

Kendra will speak about Canada’s ocean opportunity, the growing global demand for ocean solutions, while highlighting the benefits of cluster activity for Canada as a whole.

In her presentation, Kendra will demonstrate the momentum that is building as Canada’s Ocean Supercluster helps drive unprecedented multi-sector collaboration, engagement across the country and internationally, and new economic activity and industry investment realized through projects that will help grow Canada’s economy in a sustainable way, now and in the future.

If Kendra’s plenary interests you, you’ll also be keen to take in our Seaweed and Finfish Aquaculture session on the opportunities these industries have for economic impact and recovery.
