Ideas for Atlantic Prosperity

Welcome to the website of AIMS, the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies.

We are a Canadian non-profit, non-partisan research institute that provides a distinctive Atlantic Canadian perspective on economic, political, and social issues. The Institute seeks to stimulate public debate with well-considered argument and evidence-based data.

Our institute provides public policy research on six germane topics to Atlantic Canadians: Energy & Environment, Municipal Affairs & Economic Development, Public Finance & Fiscal Federalism, Healthcare Policy, Education & Training, and Immigration & Labour. In addition to our policy papers, we contribute regularly to the regional and national media as a voice for market solutions.

AIMS is an independent research organization that does not receive government funding.
