Since 2005, the biennial MSC conferences, held in Victoria, BC, are the only conference of its kind in Canada.
With over 200 international delegates from military and related maritime industries attending this bienniel event, the conference attracts an exclusive senior contingent of professionals involved in all aspects of maritime operations and security, from decision-makers, to academics, to industry suppliers, to well-known and accomplished subject matter experts, from all over the world.
Delegates are brought together for three days to Victoria, British Columbia’s beautiful capital city on Vancouver Island, in an environment that fosters learning and exchange with ample opportunity for connecting with peers. Known for quality programming, MSC uniquely blends both academic theory and current issues, drawing on a significant range of international security practitioners and analysts.
The MSC conference organizers are enthusiastic participants in the maritime security community of interest and keenly aware of the qualities which make for rewarding and worthwhile conference experiences. The MSC program is designed to foster dialogue on the most pressing issues facing international security practitioners, while providing ample time for our delegates to make valuable connections with similarly-interested colleagues from around the world.
