As the world’s population and standards of living continue to grow, the global energy demand also continues to rise. For Canada, meeting that energy demand responsibly means making use of all the available options in our energy tool kit and developing our energy systems to be more efficient and flexible.
Our country has a wealth of natural resources and is an innovator in the energy sector. From the hydroelectricity produced in provinces such as Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec, to the extraction of crude oil and natural gas in western Canada, our country has a diverse range of energy sources to draw on.
This factbook offers a snapshot of Canada’s energy sector. It covers topics such as where natural resources are found for energy production, how energy is transported to where it needs to go, the emerging field of renewable energy, and much more. Broken down by province and territory, this factbook takes you on an energy tour across the country.
