What ACOA for?

As a developing parent, I’ve been preparing myself to answer Oliver’s questions about everything from the colour of the sky to how orgasms work. Last night, however, he stumped me.

Compass was running a story about the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency’s release of their new 5-year economic development plan for the region. Oliver heard the word “ACOA,” and asked me “What ACOA for?”

I had no idea how to respond.

ACOA is where the other half of Compass now goes, financially. It’s fertilizer for the business garden.

Man, in my house ACOA means something very, very different.
