Thank you to all volunteers

Every year, hundreds of volunteers contribute with passion and dedication to the safety of navigation in Quebec, the protection of aquatic ecosystems or the economic prosperity of our coastal communities.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard, Quebec Region, recognize the importance of the tremendous work done—in some cases for many years—by these different groups of volunteers! Without their assistance, a number of activities connected to the Department’s mandates could not be accomplished so effectively.

National Volunteer Week is an opportunity for us to thank all these people who with incredible generosity support the dynamism of the maritime community. We greatly appreciate your contribution.
