On June 29, 2012, the Fisheries Act was amended. Policy and regulations are now being developed to support the new fisheries protection provisions of the Act (which are not yet in force). The existing guidance and policies continue to apply. For more information, see Changes to the Fisheries Act.
In the Pacific Region, the Habitat Management Program (HMP) has a number of offices in British Columbia and the Yukon.
