Sharing a border with the United States across the great inland lakes of North America, Canada and a large part of its population developed along internal waterways. Toronto, the venue for this year’s conference, once had great ambitions for economic growth driven by port industries, but a century later residential, recreational, and cultural plans encourage citizens to reimagine the waterfront as a metropolitan gateway reconnected to the lake, the surrounding hinterland, and the greater world. The conference celebrates these connections to a maritime past that is so often lost in the bustle of everyday lives along the Lower Lakes, with the focus extended to the Upper Lakes at the 2019 conference to be held in Thunder Bay. Topics could include:

  • Shipping, maritime commerce, and trade

  • Ships and shipbuilding

  • Ports and harbour management

  • Maritime labour

  • Development of urban waterfronts

  • Environmental studies, including water levels and quality, and weather

  • First Nations and indigenous peoples

  • Marine archaeology and management of heritage resources

  • The Great Lakes in popular culture and literature

  • Naval aspects

Proposals on other maritime topics from all time periods are also welcome.

The Canadian Nautical Research Society is committed to making maritime history more accessible, and to fostering a culture of inclusion. We invite interdisciplinary proposals from speakers who will contribute to the diversification of our discussions and community. We also encourage publication of expanded versions of final papers in our journal, The Northern Marine/Le marin du nord, or in our quarterly publication, Argonauta.
