TURNING THE TIDE

We have always turned to the sea for our livelihood. Communities have been built and fortunes won and lost on her bounty. This continues today as we find new and innovative ways to utilize our greatest natural advantage. As true as this is, we barely scratch the surface in capturing the many stories of our marine heritage, and no single event recognizes the ongoing value of our marine industry as a whole. We envision a new awards recognition program to accomplish this.

Although the words Turning the Tide literally describe an ocean event, they are also a metaphor for a change of momentum in events, lives and the fortunes of businesses and communities. Both these contexts make Turning the Tide the ideal phrase for recognizing leadership and success in today’s industry and for bringing more defining moments in our marine history to light. As a Turning the Tide supporter, you will help us accomplish both of these goals, drawing attention to our province’s strength and vitality, past and present.
