Learn Amazing Things
Regardless of age, you can always learn new, incredible things about the life that exists around us. We at the Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise ® initiative, are continuously learning new things through our conservation programs and research studies, and we share this knowledge throughout our facility and online. Explore our AquaFacts to find facts you never knew, take a deeper look at Canada’s Arctic through our online exhibits, or visit the Aquarium through a class field trip.
Educating Our Future Generations
We are committed to promoting the highest standards of education and creating a real awareness across all ages of the conservation issues our world is facing. We develop curriculum-based resources to support Aquarium field trips, and to accompany our Ocean Wise and Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup programs. We also provide professional development opportunities for teachers and teachers in training.

Meeting B.C. Curriculum Standards
All of our programs are developed to support the prescribed learning outcomes of the B.C. Ministry of Education’s integrated resource packages. We offer a range of school programs in both English and French, in our classrooms, wet labs and galleries. These programs, along with the AquaVan, camps, clubs and sleepovers provide rich educational experiences throughout British Columbia and even Alberta.
