Atlantic Aboriginal Economic Integrated Research Program

The Economic Development Department of the Atlantic Policy Congress exists to provide insight, advice, information, and training pertinent to the economic development of the Atlantic Region’s First Nations communities. The department supports our communities in their unique efforts to enact the Atlantic Aboriginal Economy Building Strategy (AAEBS), also known as the “Chiefs’ Strategy,” helping to build prosperous, autonomous, and sustainable Nations.  Part of the Economic Development department is the Atlantic Aboriginal Economic Development Integrated Research Program (AAEDIRP) whose main purpose is to work with Aboriginal communities to improve the knowledge base concerning Atlantic Aboriginal economic development in order to improve the lives of Aboriginal peoples in the region.
