First Offshore Wind Farm in Canada


ACOD seeks to develop the first offshore wind farm in Canada and is actively engaged with Federal and Provincial Authorities to advance this burgeoning industry in the Atlantic provinces.

Project Objectives

ACOD’s project will demonstrate the immense offshore wind opportunity for Atlantic Canada with the following key objectives:

  • To stimulate economic growth and create clean jobs
  • To capitalize on existing skill sets available in the region
  • To prove the viability of offshore wind in Atlantic Canada
  • To contribute to the region’s objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • To utilize, renovate, and expand existing marine, port, and transmission infrastructure to deliver a just green transition
  • To demonstrate that First Nations, traditional ocean users, and fisheries can not only co-exist, but also mutually benefit and thrive, with the development of offshore wind
