We believe that to see a change in the world, the solution must first start with US!

A startling chain reaction has begun to emerge in the Atlantic provinces. There are jobs without people and people without jobs, a declining economy , youth unemployment and varying social issues.


But let's look at the other side of the spectrum. Atlantic Canada is a landscape of possibility and innovation just waiting for an entrepreneur to settle in and take on the challenges that may come there way. We see support for the entrepreneur through community, business leaders and access to capital.


Here's to "Changing the Story" of Atlantic Canada. We in the East Coast have a pride in our provinces that extends into our daily lives and we apply this passion to our mindset, our way of life and our ideas.

The Pond-Deshpande Centre is excited to be encouraging communities across Atlantic Canada to host YES Atlantic events in 2018!


In the past, YES Atlantic has been a two-day summit that encouraged youth to take action, seize opportunities, leverage support and join the entrepreneurial community in Atlantic Canada.



Communities and organizations can submit proposals to host a YES Atlantic in 2018.

Proposals are due March 16th, 2018.
