Other Things to Note:
The Atlantic Fisheries Fund is a contribution program funded jointly by the federal, provincial and territorial governments. It will invest over $400 million over 7 years to support Canada’s fish and seafood sector. The federal government will provide 70% of the funding, and 30% will come from participating provinces and territories. The national component of the fund is called the Canadian Fish and Seafood Opportunities Fund, and has a separate application process.
Applications will be accepted until all available funding for the fiscal year has been allocated to projects. Funding will become available again in the next fiscal year.
