Sub-program 1.2.2 - Aboriginal Aquatic Resource and Oceans Management
The Aboriginal Aquatic Resource and Oceans Management Program is a contribution program to assist Aboriginal groups to develop capacity to more effectively participate in aquatic resource and oceans management multi-stakeholder processes, at a broad watershed or ecosystem level. The Program provides funding to qualifying Aboriginal groups to form aquatic resource and oceans management organizations capable of hiring or contracting skilled personnel to effectively participate in decision-making and advisory processes. Other objectives achieved include: encouraging the establishment of collaborative management structures; and improving information-sharing among and between Aboriginal communities, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and other stakeholders.
