Analysis of Programs by Strategic Outcome

Sub-program 2.1.1 - Education and Shared Stewardship


The Education and Shared Stewardship Program consists of the suite of essential activities for promoting compliance, through strategies such as education, promotional campaigns, and engagement of partners and stakeholders. Educational activities raise awareness and understanding, resulting in a more informed public and resource users improving their ability to comply with regulatory requirements. Promotional campaigns cultivate a conservation ethic in stakeholders and the general public, motivating them to higher rates of voluntary compliance. Engagement of First Nations, clients, and other interest groups in compliance management decision-making and in the delivery of compliance functions increases a sense of ownership and stewardship responsibility in the management regimes for aquatic resources. The Program will evolve from strictly school visits and other activities aimed at the general public towards further engagement of targeted resource user groups and the seafood supply chain. Collectively, Education and Shared Stewardship programs promote compliance and build support for the future.
