Letter to Minister

September 26, 2018

Dear Minister Wilkinson:

Please find attached the final report of the National Advisory Panel on Marine Protected Area Standards.

It has been an honour to work with fellow Panelists and hear from intervenors across the country including Indigenous peoples, those in industry, environmental groups, academics, and government. Over the course of the last five months we have learned a lot and we hope our recommendations will support your work to revive our oceans’ health.

On behalf our colleagues on the Panel, we thank you and your predecessor, the Honourable Dominic Leblanc, for the opportunity to serve.


Rémi Bujold
