Canada works to high Environmental, Social and Governance standards. Some jurisdictions with lower standards are flourishing in the global energy market while Canada continues to debate the value of the sector at home. This debate, often not grounded in the facts, is hurting our prosperity. Canadians deserve better.
Canadian energy is good for Canada and good for the world. We know world demand for our energy is increasing and with our world-leading commitment to human rights, labour rights and the environment, Canada can be, and should be, the supplier of choice to meet this demand.
It’s time to start talking openly and honestly about our energy sector. We know climate change is real. That is why our energy sector has played a leading role in investment in renewable energy and clean technology innovation. There is always more to be done, but let’s do it together.
Canadians from coast to coast to coast should be proud of their energy sector and its contribution to Canada and the world.
The facts have always been on our side – when we work, Canada works.
About the Canadian Energy Centre (CEC)
The Canadian Energy Centre (CEC) is an independent provincial corporation that is primarily supported by the Government of Alberta’s industry-funded Technology, Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund. The CEC’s mandate is to promote Canada as the supplier of choice for the world’s growing demand for responsibly produced energy. At its core, the CEC will also create a new, pragmatic, fact-based narrative about Canadian energy.
