CAPP’s Response to the Fisheries and Oceans Canada Blue Economy Strategy Engagement Paper
Canada is an ocean nation spanning vast areas from Canada’s Arctic regions, to the west coast of British Columbia and to Newfoundland and Labrador. All ocean users have a role to play in the stewardship of our ocean resources and to help Canada’s ocean-based economy strive towards a more sustainable future.
The Blue Economy Strategy (BES) is an opportunity to grow and modernize our ocean sectors in a sustainable way. Achieving success will take the time, innovation and hard work by all ocean resource users collectively to chart a successful path forward for generations to come.
CAPP welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the Government of Canada in response to Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO)’s BES Strategy Engagement Paper and the various consultation sessions CAPP staff and members attended, as part of the government’s stakeholder engagement process. This submission provides to DFO and its partners feedback on the important role of the Canadian offshore oil and gas industry as a pathway for growing Canada’s Blue Economy.
