Partnering with Navius Research, Clean Energy Canada delved into Canada’s clean energy sector to better understand its contribution to the economy. This future-looking study follows our historical analysis from May (Missing the Bigger Picture) and provides a clear roadmap for Canada’s future.
The report finds that Canada’s clean energy sector will employ 559,400 Canadians by 2030—in jobs like insulating homes, manufacturing electric buses, or maintaining wind farms. And while 50,000 jobs are likely to be lost in fossil fuels over the next decade, just over 160,000 will be created in clean energy—a net increase of 110,000 new energy jobs in Canada.
When it comes to getting to Canada’s energy future, there’s a slow lane, fossil fuels, and a fast lane called the clean energy sector.
