The MEI is an independent public policy think tank with offices in Montreal and Calgary. Through its publications, media appearances, and free advisory services offered equally to all policy-makers, the MEI stimulates public policy debate and reforms based on established principles of market economics. It neither solicits nor accepts any government funding.

Why support think tanks?

Because they provide an essential link between the world of research, politicians, and the general public. Through their educational mission, think tanks help clarify public policy debates for elected officials, journalists, and citizens. Their regular participation in the public debate make them an essential institution in a democracy, hence the importance of following their work and of helping them play their role.

And why support the MEI?

Because we are the only think tank in French Canada that presents solutions and an analytical framework based on entrepreneurship, market mechanisms, and respect for individual freedom.
