Exploring options for our future that support economic growth and opportunity.
Welcome to the Frontier Centre for Public Policy.
We are a small, group of policy analysts conducting research on a wide variety of issues at federal, provincial and municipal levels. We seek out experts in specific fields to complete additional research projects.
Our team of experienced public policy innovators and prominent academic specialists are based in Canada and around the world. Our Board of Directors, Expert Advisory Panel and staff includes people of a wide variety of political persuasions and we regularly publish research that praises some government policies and criticizes others. We do not subscribe to any political ideology. Unlike political or lobby groups, which often represent only the narrow interests of their members, we aim to advance the interests of the public as a whole. As a think tank, we are free to explore new ideas and policy initiatives unconstrained by the pressures that political parties face to be popular at the polls.
In order to protect our independence, and our reputation as a research group, the Frontier Centre neither seeks nor accepts any government funding whatsoever. Instead, we seek to diversify our funding base as much as possible to ensure that we are not beholden to any particular industry, interest or persons. This ensures that the Frontier Centre is insulated from the political pressures that often discourage publicly-funded research groups from exploring sensitive issues.
