    The Atlantic provinces can sometimes be overlooked in the grand scheme of Canada’s energy story but take a closer look and you’ll find they are a microcosm of our country’s energy landscape. From nuclear power plants and crude oil refineries to wind farms and tidal power stations, Atlantic Canada is uniquely diverse in energy resources.

    Offshore oil production facilities can be found along the eastern coast of Newfoundland, while New Brunswick is home to the biggest crude oil refinery in Canada. Nova Scotia has a long history of coal mining, but today is making a transition to cleaner energies like hydro and wind. And Prince Edward Island has wholly embraced wind power.

    This factbook offers a snapshot of the energy sector in Atlantic Canada. It covers topics such as where natural resources are found for energy production, the process through which energy is turned into electricity, the role of energy exports and imports, how the energy industry impacts the environment, and much more.
