CPP/Adp Referee of the year

The journal received many more manuscripts than usual in 2021 and hence relied especially on its valuable reviewers.  Among many who contributed very substantially to our success, the Board of Editors chose Jeff Chan of the Department of Economics, Wilfrid Laurier University as the Referee of the Year, for the extraordinary promptness of his thorough reviews. We at the journal are grateful to Jeff and to all our reviewers.

Along with the Canadian Economics Association, the journal co-sponsors the Mike McCracken Award for Economic Statistics to recognize theoretical and applied contributions to the development or use of economic statistics in Canada. The prize is in part supported by a generous contribution in 2017 by the McCracken family. 

Aims and Scope

Since 1975, Canadian Public Policy/Analyse de politiques has been the foremost peer-reviewed journal examining economic and social public policy issues in Canada. It is directed at a wide readership including policy researchers, decision makers and advisers in governments, businesses, unions, non-government organizations and universities. CPP  is available in print and online.

From the beginning the journal was intended to be multidisciplinary.  It was founded as a separate charitable organization by the Canadian Economics Association with other sponsoring organizations the Canadian Political Science Association, the Canadian Association of Law Teachers, the Canadian Sociology and Anthropology Association, the Canadian Association of Geographers, the Canadian Association of Schools of Social Work, the Institute of Public Administration of Canada, the Administrative Sciences Association of Canada, and the Canadian Association for Business Economics.
