Energy

In Canada, the role of the energy sector assumes special importance. There are enormous changes taking place in the energy sector around the world, in North America and in Canada. These changes are being driven by three dominant considerations:

  • the need for more energy production to feed continuing economic growth and development around the world
  • the need to make any society more energy efficient
  • the need to make real progress in reducing impacts from greenhouse gases

Ontario has sweeping new legislation to attract new investment, create new green economy jobs and better protect the climate. The Green Energy Act (GEA), will help the government ensure Ontario’s green economic future by building a stronger, greener economy with new investment, creating well-paying green jobs and more economic growth for Ontario – a projected 50,000 jobs in the first three years.
