3.1 Principles for a Canadian Energy Strategy


We believe that any energy framework intended to ensure the nation will prosper and remain competitive into the clean energy future must include:

Energy Security

Provide affordable, accessible, reliable, sustainable, and efficient energy services to citizens with minimal risk to future generations;

Jobs and Prosperity

Leverage Canada’s considerable renewable and non-renewable resources to increase our share of the global market for low-carbon goods and services, spurring new jobs, investment, and innovation; and

Climate Change and Environment

Reduce the impacts of climate change by lowering carbon emissions at a pace and at a scale recommended by Canadian and international climate scientists. Protect and restore air, land, and water resources by ensuring rigorous environmental assessments and setting hard limits on cumulative ecosystem impacts.

We look forward to hearing from you.
