The Atlantic Canada Economics Association (ACEA) was founded in 1971. Its purpose is to “promote the improvement and application of Economics in Atlantic Canada”. In order to achieve this purpose, the Association will:
- organize a conference at least once a year,
- publish written material
- maintain liaison with other appropriate professional organizations, and
- use other means appropriate for the purpose.
Economists in Atlantic Canada can participate in the activities of the Association by becoming members and by being elected to the executive. The executive is composed of a president, a vice-president, a secretary-treasurer, the past president, directors, and a member appointed by the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council. A general meeting and a meeting of the executive are usually held in connection with the annual conference of the ACEA. The papers and proceedings of each annual conference are posted in the website.
