Women and men in Canadian fisheries are the backbone of our coastal, rural and indigenous communities. They feed millions of families across the country and around the world. In 2019, Canada issued $ 7. 4 billion seafood.
The men and women of Canadian fisheries form the backbone of our coastal, rural and Aboriginal communities. They feed millions of families across the country and around the world. In 2019, Canada issued $ 7. 4 billion seafood.
On World Fisheries Day, we celebrate the hardworking women and men of Canada’s fisheries. Harvesters are indigenous and non-indigenous people who use crew members from their communities, or work with relatives in a family business.
Covid-19 has shown us the resilience and dedication of Canada’s fish harvesters. Throughout the pandemic, thousands continued to hunt, keeping our economy robust and grocery freezes in stock. They took meticulous precautions to keep each other and their communities safe.
To ensure these women and men get the support they need during this difficult time, we created the Fish Harvesting Benefit Program. This program is designed to meet the unique pay and seasonal structure of the industry. The combine harvesters helped keep the crew on their payroll and cover their operating expenses. It allowed them to keep hunting without worrying about the changing market or the cost of PPE. More than 18,000 fishermen in each province and territory received more than $ 126 million in financial support through the program.
These investments are more than just seeing the harvest during this pandemic. We are investing in this industry, so it is well positioned to recover and grow after the pandemic. This year, Canadians have stepped up to buy more Canadian seafood, and lent a hand to their neighbors.
Meanwhile, investments such as the Canadian Seafood Stabilization Fund and the Canadian Fish and Seafood Opportunities Fund have helped our seafood sector adapt to changing consumer habits.
On World Fisheries Day, we are reminded how important this industry is to Canada. Independent fishermen, both indigenous and non-indigenous, put food on our tables, create well-paying jobs, and generate billions for our national economy.. As Canada searches for ways to rebuild better, our fisheries have shown us a true example of resilience and perseverance.
