Powering the world

Canada has an abundance of natural resources right under our feet and just off our coasts – oil, gas, minerals, metals, forest products – and we can power the world with them.

If we can mine and export the materials needed for electric cars and wind turbines in the most sustainable way; produce the cleanest natural gas in the world to displace coal in Asia; and produce Canadian oil with less energy, less water, and less pollution – we are fighting climate change.

This is our opportunity – to create jobs and a clean world for our kids and grandkids.

Displacing Coal With LNG

Hard-working oil and gas workers have helped build communities across Canada, and will help build Canada’s clean, innovative and competitive energy future. The LNG Canada consortium will invest $40-billion in Canada, to export natural gas to Asian markets to replace coal power. This project was developed with strong Indigenous partnerships, including the Haisla Nation. It is the largest private-sector investment in Canadian history, creating up to 10,000 jobs with hundreds of millions of dollars in partnerships with Indigenous businesses. It will help some of the world’s biggest polluters take action on climate change by switching from coal to LNG. A win for the economy and the environment.

Taking action on expanding our energy opportunities

We are working to maximize the value of Canada’s assets for all Canadians. This requires finding ways to connect our energy products, technologies and services to the global market.

The Government of Canada is supporting initiatives across the country that are powering the world:

Clean production

Competitiveness and innovation

Getting products and services to market
