Ecotrust Canada actively supports the development of resilient local and regional economies, focusing on the smaller places where people have lived for generations.
We believe that communities play fundamental roles as stewards of land and sea. The world has repeatedly demonstrated that economic development without support for both
rural and urban communities leads to myriad social, cultural, and financial challenges.
We have the opportunity to bring better balance to our economy
– to correct a drift that has been pulling Canada away from policies that could otherwise enable and revitalize communities.
I am proud to present Caught Up in Catch Shares. It represents a continuation of our work to shed light on the economic
and cultural values that BC’s commercial fisheries bring to our coast. With your support, we will continue to ask tough questions and design more equitable answers.
