In 2013, I was proud to vote for my friend and former colleague MP Rick Norlock’s private member’s bill that established a National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day to be celebrated annually on the third Saturday of September.

As Canadians, we understand the importance of conservation, and those who hunt and fish for recreation or for food understand the need to manage this activity properly so it will be something that can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Keep Canada Fishing is the national voice of Canada’s anglers, and we lead the effort to preserve your right to sustainably fish on our lakes, oceans, rivers and streams. By informing anglers of current and potential issues and threats affecting recreational fishing and access to public waters, our goal is to motivate anglers to take action on matters of importance to the future of fishing and conservation.
