Atlantic Canada Economics Association Meetings 2020

May 4, 2020

Dear Sir/Madam,

The Atlantic Canada Economics Association (ACEA) annual meeting was to be held October 16-18 in Halifax, Nova Scotia - hosted by Dalhousie University. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dalhousie planning committee agreed unanimously that the conference be postponed to October 2021 (exact date to be announced). The ACEA executive has unanimously supported this recommendation and Dalhousie University has, once again, graciously accepted to host the 2021 conference.

We recognize that many look forward to this conference, not only as a time to re-connect with friends and colleagues, but also as a time to disseminate research among their peers. As such, we are discussing ways in which researchers can circulate the work, they would have otherwise presented, through a centralized ACEA portal. Once ready, further information will be circulated on how manuscripts/presentations can be shared using this platform.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to inquire - you may contact me at On behalf of the ACEA executive, I would like to thank the Dalhousie planning committee for their work in preparing, what would have undoubtedly been, a successful 2020 conference and also appreciate their timely decision. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.


Dr. Barry Watson

ACEA President
