Energy is an issue that touches every person on the planet. Yet the global energy sector is undergoing a profound transformation. New technologies and new sources of energy are coming online; new players are reshaping the global energy market; millions of dollars are being invested in new transportation and processing facilities; and the search for more efficient and less carbon-intensive energy solutions are reverberating throughout many sectors. These sessions look at the various dimensions of the changing energy landscape and their potential impacts on the larger global economy.
  • Special Session: Canada’s Energy Strategy

    Thursday, March 27 / 2:45pm - 3:45pm

    There have been calls from many quarters for a strategy to guide public policy and private investment in Canada’s energy sector. As the ‘owners’ of Canada’s natural resources, provinces and territories have a key role to play in shaping the development, processing, distribution, use and trade in our abundant energy resources, both renewable and non-renewable. This session will bring together a select group of provincial energy ministers and representatives from the business community to explore regional priorities for a Canadian energy strategy delivering economic prosperity, improvements in environmental performance and a secure, reliable and affordable energy supply.
