Sub-activity 1.1.3

Energy Market Regulation and Information


Canada's rich energy resources are an important source of wealth and employment, and energy exports significantly contribute to Canada's trade. Securing these benefits requires regular assessment and monitoring of Canadian energy resources, infrastructure and regulations. This sub activity aims to foster a competitive Canadian energy sector by working with provinces and territories to articulate Canada's approach to the management of energy resources, engaging industry and regulatory authorities to renew energy regulations as needed (e.g. offshore oil and gas, pipelines, nuclear, etc.), and promoting energy literacy among Canadians. To achieve these goals, this sub activity assesses and updates (if necessary) federal energy regulations and policies, engages domestically and internationally on energy issues, and provides Canadians with information on energy markets.
