Visit our look-up page to find your government representative.
If you would like to learn more about fishing and fishing issues in your area, it’s a good idea to contact a local conservation or hunting and fishing organization. There are many, including the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC and the Manitoba Wildlife Federation. Please check back soon for a comprehensive list of organizations.
You have more influence than you realize! Just by getting out on the water with a fishing rod and some of your favourite tackle, you are helping to Keep Canada Fishing… and keep the fishing industry alive. Not only that, you have power at the polls, where you vacation, and through the organizations and retailers you support.

Why Advocating for Fishing is Important

  • Ensures sustainable ecosystems, including abundant fisheries, for years to come.
