About the Event

Watch live: Live stream or on CPAC

This 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 and employers, discussion among diverse stakeholders and debate about how to develop policy that helps municipalities and businesses succeed.

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.

Read the new reports that will be released at the Summit.

After the Summit, stay for our annual Atlantic Dinner & Frank McKenna Awards on the evening of March 21.
