Vision

In celebration of its 70th anniversary, the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council and Atlantic Central Credit Unions are proud to host the 44th President of the United States in Halifax on  November 13, 2019.

A rich history, a bright future,
and a once-in a lifetime opportunity.

This is an invitation to be a part of something that will have an impact for generations to come. A world class gathering for our present and future business and community leaders.

70 years is an incredibly long time for an organization or business to survive, particularly a not for profit, economic development agency.

What started as a small sector driven organization with $900 in assets 70 years ago, is today an economic development leader with over $160 million in projects under management.

It is a moment in time to be proud of what we have accomplished and the impact we have had on the communities and economy of Atlantic Canada, and on the lives of ordinary people who call this place home. Our impact has reached regional, national and international levels.

From innovation, launching new businesses and initiatives, building the brand, creating partnerships, creating jobs, delivering results and being a model that others emulate, we have much to celebrate.

We are honoured to announce that the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama will be our 70th Anniversary Celebration speaker – and it will be a game-changing event for over 8000 of the best and brightest minds from Atlantic Canada – and across the Country.

This is your invitation to be seen as a leader  in Atlantic Canada who believes in the full potential of our region, the power of positivity, and the importance of true leadership – today more than ever.

We hope you will join us and seize this once-in-a-life opportunity. We’re confident the knowledge, energy, and new connections you’ll make will be remarkable.

Here’s to dreaming big in Atlantic Canada. With the right attitude – anything is possible.
