Maritime Security Challenges 2020: Pacific Seapower
Strategic Competition in the Indo-Asia-Pacific
October 20 – 22 at Victoria, British Columbia

We’re pleased to offer Maritime Security Challenges 2020 (MSC20). Join us in beautiful Victoria, BC, Canada from 20-22 October 2020 to participate in the ninth iteration of Canada’s leading maritime security conference.

MSC20 will concentrate on Great Power competition in the Indo-Asia-Pacific, with a particular focus on how middle powers are navigating in this challenging environment.

The conference program is now available and MSC20, as ever, will include key networking events such as a daysail on board a RCN Halifax-class frigate, a welcoming reception, and a marquee banquet dinner.

Visit the registration and accommodations pages for more information on joining us for MSC20!



At this time there is no plan to postpone or cancel MSC20. The MSC20 organizers are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, including checking Government of Canada health and travel advisories; updates will be provided as the situation evolves.
