Dear Minister:

On behalf of Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums (CAZA) congratulations on your appointment as Canada’s Minister of Finance. The task before you to restart Canada’s growth of the future is immense, we wish you nothing but success.

As the voice of Canada’s 30 accredited zoo and aquariums our facilities not only operate to the highest of operational and animal care standards, we also welcome more than 12 million each year coming from all over Canada and the world.

Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan has been a significant help as our members institution deal with the economic hardship caused by the pandemic. Our pre-budget submission (attached) outlined the usage, importance and recommendations going forward.

We wish you every success, we look forward to the opportunity soon to meet with you to discuss accredited zoos and aquariums place in the economy and recovery.

Best Wishes,
