The Canadian Economics Association has more than 1,400 members. Its purpose is to promote economic knowledge by encouraging study and research on all aspects of economics. The Association publishes two journals: Canadian Journal of Economics/Revue canadienne d’économique and Canadian Public Policy/Analyse de politiques. The Association does not take partisan positions on practical politics or commit its members to any positions. More than 800 participants from around the world attend its annual meeting. The next meeting will be held at the University of Calgary in June 2012.
