The Atlantic Initiative
Building a sustainable, technology-based knowledge economy to increase living standards for all Atlantic Canadians
Canada is one of the most prosperous countries in the world by various measures, and yet many who live here face persistent barriers to economic opportunity and wealth accumulation for themselves, their families, and communities. The nation’s continued progress depends not only on how much prosperity we generate, but also on who has access to it: are we All In, or just some of us?
The multi-phase, multi-year research and engagement initiative will develop an in-depth understanding of economic and financial inclusion and engage stakeholders nation-wide in the development of practical measures to address the most significant existing and emerging barriers to economic wellbeing and wealth.
An expert Advisory Council, currently comprising 13 members, and PPF’s TD Fellow for Economic and Financial Inclusion, Gayathri Shukla will play central roles in the initiative with the latter shaping and executing the project’s research agenda and it’s engagement programming.
