Career Opportunities for Economists in Atlantic Canada
The Atlantic Association of Applied Economists (AAAE) hosted a 1-hour webinar in March 2017 to discuss the different types of opportunities for economists in Atlantic Canada, what economists do on a daily basis, and what employers are looking for. Five panelists from the federal government, provincial government and think tank community across the region participated in the session. The recorded webinar can be viewed here.

Information on the Internship Program at the Atlantic Provinces Economic Council (APEC) is also available here.
