Step 1. Overview

The Canadian Fish and Seafood Opportunities Fund aims to:

  • advance a national approach to key cross-cutting market access issues
  • promote branding and recognition opportunities for the Canadian fish and seafood sector

Canada has high quality, legally and sustainably sourced fish and seafood products. This is a reputation that provinces and territories can leverage to boost Canada’s fish and seafood sector opportunities.

To address the challenges facing the fish and seafood sector, and to capitalize on new market opportunities, the program supports:

  • branding and promotional strategies that increase the recognition of Canada as a global leader in providing high quality, legally and sustainably sourced, value-added products
  • maintaining and accessing new markets
  • ensuring product integrity throughout the supply chain
  • strengthening relationships and fostering increased collaboration and organization within the Canadian fish and seafood sector

There will be a call for expressions of interest on an annual basis until all available funding has been allocated to projects.
