Fisheries Renewal

on June 15, 2011

As mentioned from the Speech from the Throne AFN anticipated the possibility of Fisheries Act emerging in full legislative reform to commence during the year, although it didn’t happen this year, there was constant monitoring on parliamentary activities and various other draft bills, and policy reforms associated with fisheries and program reviews.

In addition, AFN also increased awareness surrounding DFO’s movement towards economic access.  First Nations also shifted First Nation focus on increased access building strategies including tools for engagement, to prepare First Nations and DFO on effective ways to engage on legislative reform.
