This report assesses the investment climate for Canada’s electricity, gas, oil, and pipeline industries, based on responses from 260 senior energy sector executives to an online survey conducted by the Ivey Energy Centre towards the end of 2019. The goal of the survey was to better understand what factors are driving energy companies’ investment decisions and how Canada compares to other countries.

Historically, impact assessments for pipelines focused on factors such as safety and the prospect of spills. The regulatory process did not explicitly consider CO2e emissions. This has changed with the passage of Bill C-69. This Policy Brief outlines one potential framework for regulating induced emissions from future oil and gas pipelines.

This report provides preliminary results from a new program of research that investigates the impact of the current regulatory and political approvals processes for major hydrocarbon infrastructure projects on the investment environment for project developers.
New regulations announced by the federal government require the National Energy Board to consider the quantity of direct and upstream greenhouse gas emissions when evaluating pipeline projects. Technical Appendix.

It is well known that energy industries are major contributors to Canada’s economy, and today Canada is one of the world’s leading energy economies. This fact is quickly illustrated by headline statistics: Canada is the world’s 3rd largest exporter of electricity, 5th largest exporter of natural gas, 7th largest exporter of crude oil, and 8th largest exporter of refined petroleum products.

Many projects in extractive and infrastructure industries such as electricity, oil, gas, mining, and pipelines are situated on lands used by Aboriginal peoples. New research by Energy Centre Research Director Margaret Loudermilk, Associate Professor Guy Holburn, and André Wilkie, Associate at The Boston Consulting Group, addresses the legislation and landmark court cases surrounding this issue.
