Canadians will be casting a line and reconnecting with each other -- and one of Canada's favourite PASSTIMES.
Week encourages anglers of all ages to discover -- or rediscover -- the magic of fresh and saltwater
fishing. Canada offers over one million lakes, rivers and streams, three oceans and one of the most
diverse natural landscapes on the planet. National Fishing Week allows Canadians to engage in our
angling heritage and experience the beauty our country has to offer. Fishing is more than just a sport. Regular, seasonal and casual anglers find that fishing...
• helps to foster a new generation of conservationists
• encourages family values
• is a great way to escape and reconnect with family and friends
• helps develop an appreciation for the environment and our natural resources
• provides mental and physical health benefits
In addition to being a major media event across Canada, National Fishing Week includes hundreds of
grassroots fishing events for children, families and outdoor enthusiasts. Organizers recognize that
fishing is one of the most affordable ways for families to come together. It can serve as a relaxing
moment away from the challenges of every day life, a valuable learning experience, or an opportunity
to reconnect with loved ones and "catch a memory."
