2020 CEEE Reception:

A Virtual Toast to this Year's Canadian
PhD Job Candidates


The Canadian Economics Employment Exchange (CEEE) is an annual event organized by the CEA to facilitate the logistics of in-person interviews between Canadian Economics departments with recent PhD Economists on the Canadian job market. The CEEE also provides valued networking and camaraderie for candidates experiencing the, at times, stressful hiring process. In an ordinary year, around 20 hiring organizations and over 100 candidates congregate at a hotel in Toronto (or at the University Toronto) to hold interviews, gather for a cocktail reception sponsored by the Bank of Canada, and compare notes in the hospitality room. 

The reality of this pandemic year means an in-person CEEE is not possible, and departments have transferred to online interviews. Although demand for the in-person CEEE has parted, for 2020 the CEA is organizing this virtual event to help kick-off the Canadian Econ market and bring a modicum of cheer to this unusual job market season:


An online reception to toast this year's Canadian Econ job market candidates with experienced Economists who have served on a hiring committee and experienced the job market themselves at one point! 

Please see the event page to register:


Note: the CEA is not involved with individual virtual interviews between candidates and hiring organizations. Hiring departments will schedule their virtual interviews directly with candidates. Candidates should check the relevant job boards (e.g. EconJobMarket site /JOE / Canadian Economics departments' websites) for 2020-2021 job postings accepting applicants.
