Energy

Energy is critically important to the Canadian economy as Canada is among the largest energy producers and the highest per-capita energy consumers in the world because of our climate and resources. Thus, the secure and sustainable production and use of our energy resources presents many challenges and opportunities for Canadians.

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) works with other government departments, the provinces and territories, and other Canadian and international partners to address energy needs and potential while considering new policies, practises, and technologies.

NRCan’s expertise in the areas of energy efficiency, and energy sources and distribution allows us to provide useful energy resources and help Canadians benefit economically, environmentally, and socially from the secure and sustainable production and use of Canada’s energy resources.
