About Us

Who we are

The Canadian Public Economics Group (CPEG) is one of the Canadian Economic Association (CEA) official study groups. Its members include Canadian and international researchers in all areas of public economics and public policy, including, but not limited to, public finance, political economy, and related fields. The group organizes the public economics sessions of the CEA annual conference, and has a long tradition of hosting its own annual meetings.

Participation is open to faculty, graduate students, and researchers working in public institutions. To join the mailing list, please sign up at the bottom of this page.
