About APEC

The Atlantic Provinces Economic Council (APEC) is an independent think-tank dedicated to economic progress in Atlantic Canada. APEC is a trusted source of analysis and advice on current and emerging trends in the region's economy. Founded in 1954, APEC is an effective catalyst through which stakeholders can develop the strategies to respond to a rapidly changing world. 

It accomplishes this by:

  • monitoring and analysing current and emerging economic trends and policies
  • communicating the results of this analysis to its members on a regular basis
  • consulting with a wide audience
  • disseminating its research and policy analyses to business, government and the community at large
  • advocating the appropriate public and private sector policy responses

APEC's revenue is derived primarily from membership, funded research, events and sponsorships.  Our membership includes individuals, small and large companies, labour groups, academic institutions, municipalities and government agencies.
