Calling all fishermen! Have your safety say.

A special meeting is planned for Wednesday, September 18 at our Fish Safe office (located at 100-12051 Horseshoe Way, Richmond) at 9 am and if you’re an active BC commercial fisherman, we’d love for you to come!  (Lunch is provided for free to all who RSVP in advance.)

Now, more than ever, commercial fishermen need to speak up about what they’re seeing out on the water in terms of safety – their concerns and needs as well as the opportunities and solutions they see!

The Fish Safe Advisory Committee meeting is held 2-3 times per year and this meeting on September 18 will give fishermen the opportunity to learn about current advancements in safety and in managing risks while fishing.

Additionally, this meeting provides an open, honest and respectful forum for communicating with industry regulators – representatives from Transport Canada, WorkSafeBC, Transportation Safety Board and DFO will be in attendance to gain feedback directly from you, the fisherman.

RSVPs can be provided by email at or by calling us at 604-261-9700.
