Canadian Institute for Research on Regional Development

The Canadian Institute for Research on Regional Development (CIRRD) was established on the campus of the University of Moncton in 1983. It is an independent, non-profit organization with a mandate of “promoting informed public debate on regional development and disseminating objective analyses and information on the subject.” The CIRRD takes a multi-disciplinary approach to studying regional development that considers the fields of economics, political science, public policy, sociology, and economic geography.

The CIRRD pursues its goals through research, publishing various publications, organizing conferences, and scholarship programs. Since 1995 it has focused on, but not limited itself to, exploring the economic realities of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. The Institute’s researchers occasionally form partnerships with other academics. Research projects have included investigating the prospects of Atlantic Canada’s agri-food system, rural-urban dynamics, and cultural industries. The Maritime Series is the main collection of documents published by the CIRRD.
