An independent think tank dedicated to economic progress in Atlantic Canada.


Why Join APEC?

The Atlantic Provinces Economic Council (APEC) has been a leader in promoting the strength of Atlantic Canada’s economy for more than 60 years. Through our research, publications, conferences and policy advice, members receive informed analysis of the issues affecting the region that allows them to discover new opportunities for growth and make strategic decisions that can steer their organizations toward success.

Join us!

A trusted and non-partisan source of critical business intelligence, APEC champions productivity and innovation, empowering the region to take advantage of global economic opportunities. APEC’s members can be found in every area of business, government, and academia in Atlantic Canada.

APEC regularly represents the region in national forums on such critical topics as energy, trade and the state of the Canadian federation. We ensure the region’s views and concerns are heard on the national stage by advising federal ministers and the prime minister, and participating in Canada-wide dialogues.

A key aspect of APEC’s activities is its frequent engagement with regional stakeholders in government, business, education and community groups as well as with key policy experts and other groups outside the region. With these supporting voices, APEC's research, publications and events create a fact-based frame of reference for discussing regional economic challenges and opportunities, promoting dialogue and shaing a vision for a better future for Atlantic Canada.
