Governance

Project governance and management is provided by the Board of Directors of the Fur Institute of Canada (FIC) and the Sealing Committee (SC), and is undertaken in close collaboration with the Seals and Sealing Network (SSN).   Decision and implementation of the different activities is undertaken in close collaboration with the SSN through different sub-committees (Oil, Fur, Meat, Branding, Indigenous, Circumpolar Crafters Network and Animal/Human Health). These subcommittees form the backbone of Sealing Industry engagement and collaboration in different industry projects.
