Good news for British Columbia! Ocean Networks Canada is one of 26 projects to be selected for funding through the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP), a federal program led by Defence Research and Development Canada, in partnership with Public Safety Canada.
This funding will support our ongoing work with Hon. Naomi Yamamoto, BC's Minister of State for Emergency Preparedness, and Emergency Management BC to develop an Earthquake Early Warning alert system for British Columbia.
"Partnerships such as the ones fostered through the Canadian Safety and Security Program are great examples of the work that can be achieved when government, academia, industry work together to contribute to the safety and security of Canadians and their communities.” Thank you to the Honourable Harjit Sajjan, Defence Minister of Canada.
