The 5th Palmer Conference (2017) will examine Canadian-American relations in the wake of the Trump Presidency. The change in leadership in the United States is already having a profound effect on the Canadian-American relationship. Defense and security, energy, trade, the economy, the environment: will government policies in all such sectors require a re-evaluation in terms of Canada’s relationship with the United States?

If so, at the forefront of this policy re-evaluation will be Canada’s public sector. So what better forum to explore the implications than the Palmer Conference, an institution that has promoted leadership and intelligent discourse in the public sector since 2010?

A highlight of the conference will be a joint session with the New England Governors / Eastern Canadian Premiers, who will be meeting in Charlottetown just prior to the Palmer Conference.
