Aboriginal Fisheries Guardian program

The Aboriginal Fisheries Guardian program began in 1992 as part of our Aboriginal Fisheries Strategy. This national program provides Indigenous groups with the opportunity to participate in fisheries management to improve conservation and stewardship. This training is an important part of creating good jobs in Indigenous communities while protecting the environment.

Indigenous Guardians play an important role in improving fisheries management in Aboriginal communities. Guardians are engaged in compliance, monitoring and stewardship activities to ensure the conservation and protection of fisheries resources in their communities. Additionally, guardians may be engaged in habitat restoration, stock assessment or other activities to promote sustainable fisheries.
