Atlantic Canada’s independent voice on economic issues

COVID-19 in Atlantic Canada

COVID-19: Assessing the Economic Impacts for Atlantic Canada 

Measures to delay and reduce the spread of COVID-19 are already having financial and economic consequences regionally, nationally, and internationally which will grow with the duration and severity of this situation. Canada and other countries have started to implement policies to help mitigate these economic impacts.

As concerns about the economy grow, APEC is responding by dedicating its research resources to provide insights and analysis as the economic impacts of COVID-19 unfold.

As a first step, APEC hosted a FREE webinar on March 18, 2020 with over 900 registrants and almost 700 attendees. David Chaundy, APEC President & CEO, and Craig Alexander, Deloitte's Partner & Chief Economist provided an initial assessment of the potential economic impacts in Atlantic Canada, nationally, and internationally.

Share Your Economic Update

As relevant information is currently scarce and official economic statistics will not be available for some time, APEC is reaching out to its members, partners and other stakeholders to collect, synthesize, assess and share information that will help businesses, governments and others understand the economic impacts to assist their own decision making and to better target their responses to where help is most needed.

We are asking for your cooperation to help us quickly compile, assess and share relevant information. Please see Share your Economic Update for more information.
