Events

The Halifax Partnership has partnered with the Conference Board of Canada and are pleased to invite you to attend the Atlantic Business Outlook 2018: Nova Scotia, taking place May 16, 2018 in Halifax.

Economic growth in Nova Scotia is expected to average 1 per cent annually in 2018 and 2019. International immigration has been exceptionally strong in recent years, and that has boosted the labour force numbers in Nova Scotia. However, an increasing number of people are leaving the workforce, so employment is not expected to grow much over the next few years.

Featuring the Conference Board’s Chief Economist, Craig Alexander, the Atlantic Business Outlook includes global, national, provincial and metropolitan perspectives. The outlook will provide business leaders and policy makers from across Nova Scotia with both a deep dive into the numbers and analysis of the factors underpinning the economy. The 2018 meeting will also discuss innovation in Nova Scotia and identify steps that can be taken to capitalize on existing innovation activities to build new opportunities.
