Aboriginal fishing policy in Canada is guided by a vision of supporting healthy and prosperous Aboriginal communities through:
- building and supporting strong, stable relationships;
- working in a way that upholds the honour of the Crown; and
- facilitating Aboriginal participation in fisheries and aquaculture and associated economic opportunities, and in the management of aquatic resources.
Fisheries and Oceans Canada delivers a number of programs in support of these objectives. See the links on the right for information on specific programs and legislation affecting Aboriginal fishing in Canada.
