Chief Economist, Central 1 Credit Union
CABE provides an exceptional forum for Canadian economists to meet their peers across the country. Personally, I have gained substantial value from these interactions in my professional work, while widening my network by volunteering on CABE’s board and committees.
Evidence-Based Economic Policy Advisor and Stakeholder Engagement
CABE provides access to a great network of professional economists and policy makers across Canada. CABE brings forward the most innovative topics in economic policy in an easily digestible and fun way. I would recommend joining CABE not only to young aspiring economists but also to people who are in their mid-careers looking to meet like-minded individuals and grow professionally.

Vice-President and Chief Economist, Export Development Canada
One of the great value proposition for CABE has always been networking. I come to the Kingston conference every year because I know senior level of people are going to show up and you get great ideas and debates. It is like the ancient proverb, ‘iron on iron, so one person sharpens another.’ CABE and its activities do that for me.
