Canada’s Energy Leaders Commemorate Canada’s 150th Anniversary



As part of its commemoration of energy in Canada’s 150th year, the Energy Council of Canada has invited Canada’s energy leaders to share their insights in a series of articles written on topics of their choice.

These articles will reflect on energy developments to date, and then provide insights on what’s ahead for energy in Canada over the next 50 years.  The range of topics is unlimited – policy, technology, transformation, innovation, and collaboration to name a few.

Please have a look at the articles as they are posted here during the year.  Near the end of the year, the articles will be compiled into an e-publication for ease of reference and convenient downloading.

We hope that you enjoy reading these articles and we welcome your feedback on the observations and forward-looking insights provided by Canada’s energy leaders.
