All in one place.

The Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship (COVE) will bring ocean technology innovation and commercialization to the water’s edge of Halifax Harbour

Innovators. Educators. Defenders. Explorers. And so much more.

With a strategic location on North America's east coast, the ocean-related focus of its universities and community college, and the depth of its science-based workforce, it’s no surprise Halifax is a world leader in ocean science and business.
