Our resource sector is one of our nation’s greatest strengths and has been a key driver of economic and social development, but significant policy initiatives are necessary to realize its potential in the 21st-century. We must:
- Advocate for regulatory reform to ensure we can build the infrastructure to get our resources to world markets.
- Develop policy recommendations to ensure the decarbonization of our energy grids is a catalyst for further economic growth and development.
- Create the policy environment to allow our resource sector to modernize its operations and infrastructure while creating opportunities for a 21st-century labour force.
- Provide Canadian business with the opportunity to take a leadership position on climate policy and meet our NDC targets with emission reduction pathways that are market-driven, flexible and at the lowest possible cost for businesses and Canadians.
