Electronic Information on Program Sub-activities and Program Sub-sub-activities

 

The following tables provide information on each of the program sub-activities and program sub-sub-activities identified in DFO's Program Activity Architecture. These activities are listed by the program activity and strategic outcome to which they contribute. Information on these program activities and strategic outcomes is provided in Section 2 of the 2010-11 Report on Plans and Priorities. By working to achieve the expected results outlined below, DFO is making progress toward achieving results at the program activity and strategic outcome levels, and therefore toward fulfilling its mandate.
