Canadian Energy Industry

From Alberta’s oil sands to Quebec’s hydroelectric power plants, Canada is incredibly rich in natural resources, with a robust and diverse energy sector. Over two-thirds of electricity in Canada is generated from renewable resources. Low-carbon electricity is produced mainly through hydroelectric turbines and nuclear reactors, but wind and solar capacity is projected to continue to grow especially as emissions standards change in the push towards net-zero. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia rely on coal and natural gas for the bulk of their electricity generation, while Ontario relies mainly on nuclear power. Canada’s electricity grid is fragmented, with few connections between jurisdictions, although some electricity is traded or purchased inter-provincially or with the United States.
