The Province of Nova Scotia established a Commission on Building Our New Economy in the latter part of 2012. The Commission was chaired by Ray Ivany, President of Acadia University. Other Commissioners included Irene d'Entremont, President of ITB Information Management; Dan Christmas, Senior Advisor, Membertou; Susanna Fuller, Marine Conservation Coordinator, Ecology Action Centre; and John Bragg, Founder and CEO, Oxford Group of Companies. The Commission was supported by Joanne Fewer, Mark Austin, and Carolyn Terry.
The Commission toured the province in 2013, and reached out to Nova Scotians through a variety of means. Research provided an analytical base and informed the Commissioners on a number of topics. The Commission released their report in February of 2014.
