The Atlantic Provinces Political Science Association (APPSA) was founded in 1973 and held its first conference at St. Francis Xavier University in 1975. APPSA has met every year since, making it the longest running continuous regional political science association in Canada.

Each year, a university in Atlantic Canada assumes the responsibility of organizing and hosting the annual conference. In 2022, the conference is hosted by the Department of Political Science at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax.
