We were very pleased that the Premier of Nova Scotia, the Hon. Stephen McNeil, was able to join us at this special event to offer words of welcome.


This important dinner brought together 300 regional and national leaders to honour three influential Atlantic Canadians:


Hon. Myra Freeman, former Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia
Purdy Crawford, Counsel, Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP
Tom Traves, Past President, Dalhousie University

Last year’s inaugural Atlantic Dinner & Awards was a terrific success, establishing a proud new tradition,” said David Mitchell, President and CEO of Canada's Public Policy Forum. “We were very pleased to return to Halifax to celebrate a group of extraordinary Canadian leaders who vividly demonstrate the innovation and resilience of Atlantic Canada.”
The Atlantic Dinner & Awards are a testament to Atlantic Canadians' inspirational work in improving government, business and civil society in our country. The Forum is proud to celebrate the extraordinary contributions these honourees have made to public policy, business and education in the Atlantic region and across Canada.
