Report for 2019-20

This new 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 towards the end of 2019. Although the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has since disrupted national and global energy markets, the survey provides a baseline assessment that can serve as a comparison point for future surveys.

Survey responses indicated that investment conditions between the four energy industries ranged from neutral to unfavourable, as judged by industry executives. The results of the survey provide new insights into why investment in Canada’s energy sector has declined over the last three years, despite an abundance of natural resources, while investment in the U.S. energy sector has steadily increased.
