Energy Sources and Distribution

Meeting our energy requirements presents challenges and opportunities for Canada's regions and resource industries. Canada has many resources that are energy sources, including oil, natural gas, fossil and alternative fuels, uranium, and renewables. Harnessing and distributing the energy provided by these resources efficiently and safely requires collaboration and expertise. Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) works with provinces and territories, other government departments, and Canadian and international groups to explore how to meet our energy needs and adapt to changes in distribution methods while considering the environmental impact of doing so.
