Take Action – Your Voice is Needed
The Government of Canada is consulting with Canadians to hear their views on how to improve various environmental regulations, including the Fisheries Act, before August 31, 2016.
Responses to a short questionnaire will be used to inform government panels and committees about changes that Canadians want to see happen. By taking just a few minutes to fill out this survey, you’ll be adding your voice to helping rebuild and protect our marine fisheries. Here’s how you can help:
1) Visit the Government of Canada’s survey before August 31, 2016.
2) Fill out the survey, and in the section that asks what the Government of Canada should take into account in its review, share your views on how modernizing the Fisheries Act matters to you, or simply copy this sample text: “The Fisheries Act needs to be modernized to prevent overfishing and to rebuild depleted fish populations. The future of Canada’s oceans and fisheries matter. Please protect them.”
3) Stay tuned for updates from Oceana Canada/The Scuba News Canada on how your voice helped support modernizing the Fisheries Act. We will send out updates as we continue to meet with key decision-makers and seek to appear before the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans to outline our recommendations on what essential updates need to be incorporated.
