StatCan’s joint event with Atlantic Provinces Economic Council

COVID-19 in Atlantic Canada – One Year Later:

A Conversation with Chief Statistician Anil Arora

March 4th, 10th and 11th, 2021

As we pass the one-year anniversary of beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we reflect on how our lives have changed and continue to. Some business and organizations are still struggling to recover and our daily activities haven’t returned to pre-pandemic normal. This is an important time to assess where we are in the economic recovery.


The 2021 Census is also approaching, set to launch in May.  Census data is one of the most important sources of information for Canadians. It helps us understand where we came from, where we are, and where we are going. It will also shed further insights into the impact of COVID-19 and various economic supports. 


The Atlantic Provinces Economic Council (APEC), together with Statistics Canada is presenting a joint virtual event: COVID-19 in Atlantic Canada – One Year Later: A Conversation with Chief Statistician Anil Arora.  

Date:         Wednesday, May 12th, 2021
Time:        10:00-11:00 AM AT
Location:     Virtual (via Zoom link).

Register here. Please note simultaneous French translation and sign language interpretation will be available during the event. You will receive a calendar invite with the Zoom link a few days prior to the event. 


The event will feature a fireside chat between the Chief Statistician, Anil Arora and President & CEO of APEC, David Chaundy.  The discussion will focus on three themes, all with an Atlantic regional lens:
•    COVID-19 regional impact and economic recovery;
•    How Statistics Canada supported Canada’s pandemic response; and
•    The vital role of the census for data and decision-making.


The event is open to all Government of Canada employees and the general public. Help us share these valuable insights by forwarding this invitation to your network!
