About us

Nota Bene : Starting January 2019, the Economic Information Observatory will provide information related only to the Atlantic Canada area. 

  • The Economic Information Observatory for Atlantic Canada is an initiative to generate useful information for economic actors throughout the four Atlantic Provinces: Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Launched by PROVIS in 2013, the Observatory has become an integral component of the regional support ecosystem for economic development, maintaining its focus on information and intelligence strategy and associated priority areas. It publishes a monthly bulletin titled Intell-Echo jointly with the Economic Observatory of the Chambre d’agriculture, de commerce, d’industrie, de métiers et de l’artisanat (CACIMA) in Saint-Pierre-and-Miquelon, France, to promote regional cooperation between Atlantic Canada, the territorial collectivity of Saint-Pierre-and-Miquelon and France.
  • The Observatory offers training (please see the Training Activities and Offerings section) and takes part regularly in economic and trade missions, business forums and science-related events.  
  • This project is made possible through the support from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency sustaining research initiatives, linguistic minorities and business development, and the Province of New Brunswick as well as the Université de Moncton, Shippagan Campus, and the Prefecture and Territorial Council of Saint-Pierre-and-Miquelon, France. Information policy: Information supplied herein may be used on the condition that the Intell-Echo be cited as a source.
  • Responsibility: The project team is not responsible for the information resources supplied in this bulletin (content, links, changes, updates, timeliness of statistical data) nor for decisions or actions undertaken based on information supplied herein. Images : License Creative Commons CC0
