“Our aggressive efforts to support the responsible development of Canada’s natural resources continue to achieve important results,” said Minister Oliver. “These outcomes support jobs and generate revenue for critical social programs. Therefore, it is essential that we remain focused on our plans, given that critical work remains.”In particular, the Minister highlighted:
- His visits to the United States to promote energy security, Canada as a responsible energy supplier and approval of the Keystone XL pipeline;
- TransCanada’s recent announcement of a binding open season to obtain firm long-term commitments for a pipeline to the east;
- His announcement of a Special Federal Representative who will report directly to the Prime Minister on West Coast energy infrastructure; and
- His most recent announcements of new environmental protections, including the creation of a world-class tanker safety system.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates our Government’s commitment to research that supports jobs and long-term economic prosperity,” said Minister Oliver. “Our investment in this new International Policy Program will support the development of policies and practices that increase Canada’s competitiveness in global markets.”The University of Calgary’s new International Policy Program, funded through Western Economic Diversification Canada’s Western Diversification Program, will use a multi-disciplinary approach to assist Canada in diversifying its economy, markets and trade relations; in developing and marketing international governance expertise in the extractive resource industries; and in providing essential analysis on global economic and security issues.
