• Regional Conferences

  • Winds of change are upon the Atlantic Provinces as the region’s economies adjust to the end of the commodity supercyle and the sharp decline in the value of the loonie.

    Join The Conference Board of Canada in Halifax for the Atlantic Business Outlook Conference on April 6th, 2016 - as we provide a forum to present the Conference Board’s latest economical forecast and to discuss important issues about the city and the regional economies.

    Led by Deputy Chief Economist Pedro Antunes, the Atlantic Business Outlook will provide Nova Scotia’ business leaders and policy makers a deep dive into the numbers underpinning the economy, from a global, national, provincial and metropolitan perspective.

    How will the U.S. economy unfold over the next two years and what are the opportunities for Atlantic Canada?
    Where will the loonie bottom out and what impact will it have on exports and tourism?
    What are the impacts of tectonic shifts in the Asia-Pacific economy, and what does it mean for oil and resource prices?
    What is the economic outlook for Halifax?
    Coupled with a lively panel discussion with some of Nova Scotia’s leading business people, and a keynote address, the Atlantic Business Outlook promises to be the premier economic forecasting event in the city this year.

    The Atlantic Chamber of Commerce is taking proactive steps to promote reconciliation and respect for Indigenous rights within the corporate sector. In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Call to Action 92, the Chamber urges its members to embrace the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a guiding framework. This entails a commitment to meaningful consultation, fostering respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples before embarking on economic projects. Moreover, the Chamber advocates for equitable access to employment, training, and educational opportunities for Indigenous communities, ensuring they reap sustainable benefits from economic development initiatives.


    Recognizing the importance of education, the Chamber encourages businesses to provide comprehensive training for management and staff on the history of Indigenous peoples, including the legacy of residential schools, Indigenous rights, and Aboriginal-Crown relations. Emphasizing intercultural competency, conflict resolution, and anti-racism, these efforts aim to foster a more inclusive and harmonious corporate environment rooted in mutual understanding and respect.
