From our base in Atlantic Canada the Centre undertakes collaborative research and education on ethics. This collaboration involves partnerships with the major shapers of public life: Government, the business community, NGO’s and public service agencies. Through the provision of consultation services, and the sponsorship of research, public discussion, and education, the centre assists these partners as they seek to integrate ethics into their public practices and policies.


On May 1, 2014 Dr. Judy Haiven concluded the Everyday Ethics series for the year with her presentation on "Consumer Racial Profiling in Nova Scotia: How the Friendliness of Maritimers Contrasts with Reality." Dr. Haiven is a professor at the Sobey School of Business and the Chair of the Nova Scotia branch of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. She led discussion on her research and the findings from focus groups which were part of a Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission project on Consumer Racial Profiling.
