Economic Transformation in Atlantic Canada

In October 2005, the Public Policy Forum hosted a conference where some 150 representatives from the private sector, industry associations, and post-secondary institutions as well as federal and provincial governments came together to discuss three key aspects of Atlantic Canada: its demographic challenges, the drivers of its economic growth and transformation, as well as opportunities for trade and investment.

This report includes a summary of the discussion held at the conference and a background paper prepared previously.
