Oil Spill Response Science


The Oil Spill Response Science (OSRS) Program is a program to support the Government of Canada’s Oceans Protection Plan (formerly known as World-Class Tanker Safety System).

The program received $5 million for research, development and demonstration (RD&D) projects focused on improving recovery technologies and processes for the cleanup of heavy oil products spilled in marine environments.

This program is now closed and all funding has been allocated.
