Government of Canada 



As Canada heads into a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is committed to supporting multilateral efforts that safeguard global fisheries and promote sustainable fishing practices now and into our shared future.



Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, participated in a WTO ministerial meeting on fisheries subsidies negotiations. Chaired by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General of the WTO, the negotiations aim to curb harmful subsidies that damage the sustainability of global fisheries.
