The importance of Canada’s energy sector to the national economy can’t be overstated. It creates jobs, funds public infrastructure projects and helps pay for vital social services. In the face of changing geo-political, economic and sustainability factors, it’s critical that we take action to build on our leadership position to ensure we meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
