With the transition toward a clean, low-carbon economy underway in the Canadian energy sector, the perennial challenge of staying competitive in a global market remains. Our panelists will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities faced by Canada’s energy sector throughout this transition. Specifically, they will address the following questions: What can Canada do to ensure its job market and technology are competitive at a global level? How can Canada continue to develop a robust infrastructure to guarantee its access to global markets? What can Canada do to ensure it maintains a dynamic regulatory system that drives innovation and fosters new collaborative relationships at the global level?
