The Canadian East Coast Offshore Operators Non-attributable Fisheries Damage Compensation Program (the program) is a program the fishing industry can follow as an alternative to making a claim through the courts or other regulatory authorities. Although claims for loss or damage can be made under the laws applicable in Canada, this program offers a simpler, less expensive, confidential process for obtaining appropriate compensation. The intent of this program is to demonstrate the commitment of CAPP's members who operate in the Atlantic Canada offshore area to the efficient and fair resolution of claims proven to be attributable to upstream oil and gas activity and not attributable to any one particular operator. The program provides a basis for addressing damage to the vessel or gear of aquaculturists or commercial fish harvesters.
