If your oil and gas
came with a label,
what would you learn?

Canada is our label

You’d learn that Cana­da is a glob­al leader in respon­si­ble oil & gas pro­duc­tion. Find out why.

Global leader


Canada’s oil and gas industry is a global leader on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues 

But don’t just take our word for it. That’s accord­ing to rank­ings derived from inde­pen­dent stud­ies by Yale, the World Bank, and oth­ers. We’re mak­ing real progress toward reduc­ing total emis­sions. On part­ner­ing with Indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties. On reclaim­ing land. So as the world uses more oil and gas, we believe the world needs more Cana­di­an oil and gas.

Innovation driven


Canada’s oil and gas industry has invested billions on cleantech research and development

Canada’s indus­try is at the fore­front of high-tech ener­gy solu­tions. Tech­nol­o­gy like car­bon cap­ture & stor­age, pipeline & marine safe­ty, and more. Our liq­ue­fied nat­ur­al gas (LNG) projects will be among the clean­est in the world. Our sec­tor invests more than $1 bil­lion annu­al­ly in research & devel­op­ment, and we con­tin­ue to inno­vate as we work towards meet­ing the world’s ener­gy demands while reduc­ing emissions.

Responsibly produced


Canada’s oil and gas is produced to a higher standard

Oil and gas is used the same way, no mat­ter where it’s from. But where it’s from mat­ters. Much of the world’s oil and gas comes from author­i­tar­i­an coun­tries, like Rus­sia and Sau­di Ara­bia. Coun­tries that don’t have the same stan­dards – for the envi­ron­ment, for reg­u­la­tions, or for peo­ple. So as the world demands more ener­gy – and more respon­si­bly pro­duced ener­gy – Cana­da should meet those needs.

Petro­le­um-based prod­ucts are in almost every­thing we buy

From life-sav­ing med­ical sup­plies, to fer­til­iz­ers, to phones and com­put­ers, to the clothes and cos­met­ics we wear, plas­tics and oil and gas-based prod­ucts are an insep­a­ra­ble part of our dai­ly lives. Oil and gas also helps heat our homes, pow­ers our grid, and gets our food and prod­ucts to our doors.

Oil and gas will con­tin­ue to be a big part of our ener­gy mix for decades

Even as we devel­op and adopt more alter­na­tive sources of ener­gy, like renew­ables, hydro­gen, and nuclear, oil and gas will remain the biggest piece of the puz­zle through 2050 and beyond. Nat­ur­al gas is also a key part of how we’ll replace more car­bon-inten­sive sources, like coal.

An essen­tial part of the Cana­di­an economy

5.6 %
of GDP

Canada’s oil and gas sector accounts for 5.6% of our GDP – about $104 billion in 2020.

400 K

Canada’s oil and gas sector directly and indirectly employed nearly 400,000 people in 2020. 

$ 505 B
for schools, roads, and hospitals

Oil and gas provides our local, provincial, and federal governments with billions in revenue each year – funds that go towards the essential services we all rely on. The industry paid $505 billion in taxes and royalties between 2000 and 2019. 

$ 8.1 T
in future investment

Oil and gas investment in North America is projected to be over $8 trillion between now and 2050.
