Canadian Sealing: Ethics

The Government of Canada is committed to a humane, closely monitored seal hunt. In the same respect, the Government of Canada is also committed to the employment of its citizens. The annual Canadian seal hunt provides jobs to thousands of families on Canada's east coast and throughout the country. The seal hunt also provides much needed financial gains to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Through government led and independent initiatives, some conclusions have been made about the Canadian seal hunt:

The annual Canadian seal hunt is an economically sound, sustainable hunt of a natural resource closely monitored by the Government of Canada as well as independent organizations.
