The Atlantic Institute for Market Studies and the Fraser Institute announce announced this week they would be merging to create a think-tank covering Canadian public policy from coast to coast.

The merger of the two right-leaning organizations has been in the works for many months, said Niels Veldhuis, president of the Fraser Institute in an interview. He was in Halifax Wednesday to oversee the transition into the newly combined operation.

It all started with a member of the AIMS board and a member of the Fraser Institute board suggesting together that a greater presence in Atlantic Canada would give the Fraser Institute a stronger presence as the largest think tank in Canada.
