Canadian Saltfish Corporation : Instituted in 1970 by Act of parliament (Saltfish Act, RSC 1970, C-37), this corporation was set up to regulate interprovincial and export trade of saltfish while helping to improve earnings of salt-fish producers in Newfoundland, Labrador and Quebec's Lower St. Lawrence region. The corporation, which was required by legislation to conduct its activities on a self-sustaining basis, was placed under the supervision of the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, managed by a board of directors and advised by an Advisory Committee. Activities of this corporation included: buying salt fish produced by fisherman for salting in plants; offering loans to producers as well as supplying salt and material; processing and purchasing cured fish by producers and marketing it in the international marketplace (Portugal, Jamaica, Puerto Rico). Agents working for the corporation performed such tasks as collecting, drying, storing and packing codfish. The main office was in St John's, Nfld., but outlets were run in various communities such as Black Trickle, Domino, Punch Bowl and along the Labrador Coast. In the late '80's, the CSC participated in CIDA's food aid program, enabling the corporation to move its smaller fish productions to other countries. The corporation is dissolved by Bill C-65 (sanctioned 13th of July 1995).
