Public contribution

A bright future for Canada.

As Canadians, we are the owners of natural resources that make it possible for us to enjoy one of the highest qualities of life in the world. The energy industry plays a critical role by providing the funding needed to keep the lights on at our schools and businesses, supplying hospitals with life-saving equipment, funding essential public services and building thriving communities.

In 2015, the energy sector invested $48 billion of capital into the Canadian economy. Over the next 25 years, the oil sands alone could pay $1.5 trillion in taxes, meaning the creation of thousands of jobs for Canadians, economic prosperity across the country, and better infrastructure throughout our communities.

  • Lower unemployment, economic stability and improved infrastructure are all possible with continued investment by Canada’s oil and gas industry.
  • In 2015, the energy sector invested $48 billion of capital into the Canadian economy.
