NEIA seeking input from its members and partners in submission to inform Canada’s Blue Economy Strategy

The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) is developing a series of recommendations to inform Canada’s Blue Economy Strategy, and is looking to hear from its members and partners to understand key provincial priorities that should be reflected in its submission.

Context
In the 2020 Speech from the Throne, the Government of Canada articulated its plan for economic transformation post-COVID-19: addressing socio-economic gaps, building a stronger workforce, fighting climate change, and remaining committed to sustainable economic growthFootnote1. These broad objectives form a resiliency agenda to “build back better.” The development of a blue economy strategy is a key component of this plan as it aims to steer Canada’s ocean-based economy towards a more sustainable future and to “build back bluer.” Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is leading in the development of the strategy, and has begun public engagement.
