Canada’s Premiers release the Canadian Energy Strategy


ST. JOHN’S, Nfld.– Canada’s Premiers have released the Canadian Energy Strategy, which aims to provide the foundation for provinces and territories to work together on energy priorities and the shared goals of ensuring Canada is a recognized international leader in sustainable and secure energy production, supply and transportation.

Through agreement on a vision, common principles and objectives for energy development, provinces and territories are now better positioned to identify opportunities to develop, transport and transmit energy and to promote a robust research and technology sector to enhance the competitiveness of Canada’s energy sector and encourage the transition to a lower carbon economy, said the government release.

Canada’s energy future will require a diverse portfolio of policies that send a strong, long-term signal across the economy to enhance energy efficiency, lower our carbon footprint and support the technological innovations required to drive these priorities. Premiers said they agreed on the importance of transforming how we use and produce energy with cleaner and more sustainable approaches, which is part of governments’ broader economy-wide approach to addressing climate change.
