Atlantic Canada is taking a leadership role in innovative immigration policy and locally designed practices. In response to pressing labour market issues due to demographic changes, the region is working hard to become a place that newcomers move to and make their home in.

The day-long summit kicks off PPF’s three-year research project on Atlantic revitalization, with a special focus on immigrant retention. The program features emerging research findings, success stories drawn from small and large communities across the region, discussion among diverse stakeholders and debate about how to develop policy that helps municipalities and businesses succeed.

PPF’s Frank McKenna Awards celebrate the public policy achievements of leading Atlantic Canadians from a variety of sectors. The awards, which have been presented since 2013, were recently named in honour of Mr. McKenna, a three-term Premier of New Brunswick, former ambassador to the United States and current Deputy Chair of TD Bank Group. Mr. McKenna will attend the summit and speak at the awards dinner in the evening.
