AbstractThe purpose of this Major Report is to address the issue of gender in relation to the fishery crisis and two of the largest federal government adjustment programs (NC ARP and TAGS) designed and implemented to meet the needs of those left unemployed in the fishing industry. The working hypothesis of this Major Report is that NCARP and TAGS neglected to meet adequately the needs of women working in the processing sector of the fishery due, in large part, to a lack of attention to previous research and experience on the part of those responsible for designing and implementing these adjustment programs. -- One of the most important findings of this research is what it revealed about the lack of coordination of efforts of the federal and provincial government departments responsible for responding to the crisis. In particular, these programs have not adequately addressed the needs of women working in the processing sector of the fishery. Arguably, it is very much in the public interest that the failure of the adjustment programs and their differential impact on men and women be fully understood. It is one of the recommendations of this report that such research be carried out.
