What would a Canadian energy security strategy look like?

Thursday, March 31, 2022 - 11:00

The best time for a Canadian energy security strategy was 15 years ago. The second best time is now.

As structural global energy shortages, sanctions on Russia, and commodity market turmoil threaten political, economic and social stability around the world, the need for Canadian leadership in maintaining a secure and reliable energy supply to our allies and partners has never been more urgent. As a major exporter of oil, natural gas, uranium, hydroelectricity, and many of the critical minerals needed to develop low carbon energy infrastructure, how successfully Canada develops its energy and natural resources will impact global security not only in 2022 but in the coming decades. This will require first having a plan and then gaining political support and will to implement it. We’ve been hoping for the best; it’s time to prepare for the worst.

MLI experts will meet to discuss what a Canadian energy security strategy should look like and why the time to articulate and implement one is now.
