The Atlantic Institute for Market Studies Whether on regional issues, like destructive federal transfers and employment insurance, or on national issues like health care and education, AIMS brings a distinctive eastern voice to the debates shaping public policy in Canada. AIMS works to explain the public policy choices that we face on a broad range of issues and to stimulate people to think in new and creative ways about how to solve our most pressing public policy challenges. We carry out this work through independent high quality research, conferences, publications, the Internet, the media and collaboration with governments, universities, business and other policy institutes."

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives offers an alternative to the message that we have no choice about the policies that affect our lives. We undertake and promote research on issues of social and economic justice."

Institute for Research on Public Policy"As an independent, non-partisan think tank, IRPP's mission is to advance new ideas that will help Canadians make more effective policy choices. Our research aims to enhance the quality of the debate on the issues that matter most to Canadians by focusing on the strategic choices they must make to promote economic performance, social progress, and sound democratic governance. Through thoughtful analyses and creative policy proposals, IRPP not only addresses the issues that are at the top of today's public policy agenda but also provides insights into issues that will be on the agenda in the future. As the challenges we face become increasingly complex, never has a vigorous exchange of ideas mattered more. It is IRPP's goal to promote the insights and perspectives that solid empirical research and open debate can produce."
