Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report provides the results of a qualitative energy and mineral resource assessment completed by NRCan's Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) for approximately 200,000 km2 of seabed offshore from British Columbia in 150 to 3600 m water depth. The science-based report will help inform the decision-making process for areas Canada proposes to protect as part its commitment to conserve 10% of its marine areas by 2020.
