This Policy Brief provides a statistical overview of the contribution of Canada’s energy sector - electricity, gas, oil, and pipelines - to the country’s economy. We also provide statistics on the energy industries’ progress in lowering production emission intensity in recognition of Canada’s net-zero emissions goal. This Policy Brief is an update of the Centre's 2016 Brief with the same title.
This report provides an assessment of the investment climate for Canada’s electricity, gas, oil, and pipeline industries, based on an extensive survey of senior energy sector executives conducted by the Ivey Energy Policy and Management Centre. The goal of the survey was to better understand what factors drive energy companies’ investment decisions and how Canada compares to other countries.
The 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change (PA) is the main international policy agreement that defines the global response to climate change. This Policy Brief examines whether, five years after the Paris Agreement was first negotiated, major economies are fulfilling their policy pledges.
