Annex C: CCG Program Activity Architecture

CCG’s Program Activity Architecture (PAA) explains how we contribute to Safe and Accessible Waterways, one of DFO’s three strategic outcomes. Safe and Accessible Waterways is about providing access through Canadian waterways and ensuring the overall safety and integrity of Canada's marine infrastructure for the benefit of all Canadians.

The Canadian Coast Guard is one of several program activities in DFO’s PAA. Like the other program activities, the Coast Guard program activity has a number of sub-activities, each of which contributes to the CCG program activity.

The image below shows the relationship among the Safe and Accessible Waterways strategic outcome, the CCG program activity, and CCG sub-activities.
