REMINDER: Coalition of Atlantic Canada and Quebec Fishing Organizations Poll
To the PEIFA Membership,
For over four years the PEIFA has been part of the Coalition of Atlantic and Quebec Fishing Organizations that includes the Gulf Nova Scotia Fleet Planning Board, the Maritime Fishermen’s Union and the RPPSG in the Gaspé Region of Quebec.
Our Coalition has been focussed on ensuring that additional First Nations access to the fishery aligns with the group’s core principles of:
1. One license in one license out in terms of additional resource access
2. Fishing of the same DFO designated seasons
3. One set of resource management rules for all Harvesters
4. Consistent DFO enforcement for any infractions of the Fisheries Act
The Coalition has developed a poll to get valuable membership feedback on this important topic. The link for the poll has been sent to the email address on file for all members at the PEIFA. PLEASE CHECK YOUR JUNK FOLDER. If you have not received an email with the poll link, please contact the PEIFA office at (902) 566-4050.
We would encourage you to complete the survey and have your thoughts and positions recorded.
The poll results will be shared with elected Federal MPs and Provincial MLAs throughout the Gulf region.
Thank you for your participation in this poll as your voice does matter!
