Membership Lists

The Governments of Canada and the United States are each responsible for appointing representatives to serve on the Pacific Salmon Commission as Commissioners, Alternate Commissioners, National Correspondents, Editorial Board and Panel and Committee members.

 

Commissioners

 

Four Commissioners and four alternates are appointed by the Government of the United States. Four Canadian Commissioners and four alternates are appointed by the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.

The Chair and Vice-Chair responsibilities alternate between the two countries each year.

National Correspondents

 

Each Party has one National Correspondent who is the primary day to day contact between the Executive Secretary and the respective Parties to the Treaty. In general, the National Correspondents are responsible for coordinating the flow of information to and from the Commission. Their responsibilities include the provision of correspondence, membership information, data requests, financial information, and post season and technical reports necessary for the respective Party to meet Treaty obligations.  The National Correspondents liaise with the Executive Secretary on a regular basis.

Ms. Cara Fogliato

 

Ms. Courtney Hann

Panels

 

Four regional panels- the Southern, Northern, Transboundary and Fraser River – provide technical and regulatory advice to the Commission. Each Panel is made up of no more than six representatives and alternates from each country. Membership reflects a range of governmental and fishing interests.

The Yukon River Panel recommends annual management measures for salmon originating in the Yukon River.  Unlike other regional Panels established under the Pacific Salmon Treaty, the Yukon River Panel follows its own bylaws and does not report to the Commission.
