About the Event

Conference will not proceed as planned

We regret to inform you that in light of the continued recovery efforts due to the impact of Hurricane Fiona, the Atlantic Vision Conference scheduled for October 13-14 will not proceed as planned. While the safety and security of those rebuilding from Fiona’s devastating impact is the immediate priority, the Public Policy Forum looks forward to future events on Prince Edward Island and elsewhere in Atlantic Canada.



This event is in partnership with the Government of Prince Edward Island and the Council of Atlantic Premiers.


The Atlantic Vision Conference 2022 will mark the 25th anniversary of the 1997 conference of the same name, which focused on building and growing Atlantic Canada’s economy for the future.  

The conference will bring together Atlantic leaders, along with thought leaders from communities, academia and public and private sectors, to discuss a vision for the region over the next 25 years with an expanded focus on an Atlantic economy, society and environment that is more inclusive, equitable, diverse and sustainable.  

Atlantic Vision themes:

Bridging Divides through Social Consciousness, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Atlantic Canada is experiencing a moment of accelerated growth and opportunity. As government, industry, civil society and others work to harness this opportunity, diversity and inclusion must be front of mind for the region to realize its full potential. Barriers faced when trying to make a more equitable, diverse and inclusive future a reality must continue to be examined. How can the region work together to bridge divides?

Navigating in an Information Age

In an age where trust in media and government is trending downward around the world, Atlantic Canada is not immune to the effects. The way we gather and consume information is changing. Trust in media and government is trending downward around the world and in Atlantic Canada. As trust trends downward, how can the region work to build it back once more?

Sustainability and Social Impacts

Economically and environmentally, the world is changing. Climate change impacts communities and current ways of living despite efforts to mitigate or adapt to its impacts. Some long held beliefs, like housing and transportation models of the past may no longer be sustainable. Atlantic Canada needs to consider renewed models while reimagining what the future could look like. The disproportionate impacts of climate change on some communities and populations need to be understood and considered. Environmental sustainability should be present in every conversation and the impacts of climate change should be addressed, mitigated, and slowed. How might Atlantic Canada adapt and reimagine what it means to be sustainable while creating more robust and inclusive communities?
