  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is the ministry in charge of the development of federal energy policy.

    The Canadian Energy Regulator (CER, created in September 2019 to replace the former National Energy Board) regulates the transport (interprovincial and international lines and pipelines) and trade of energy resources. CER is also in charge of advising NRCan, conducting studies ...

  • Energy Supply


    Canada has important energy resources. It has the equivalent of more than 100 years of coal production (4.3 Gt proved reserves). Its proven oil reserves (including oil sand in Alberta) are the third largest in the world, after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia (169 Gbl, end of 2019). Its overall gas reserves are estimated at 2 008 bcm (28% of which is shale gas), while shale gas resources are ...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices in Canada are about twice as low as in most large European countries: US$11.2c/kWh for the residential sector and US$9c/kWh for industry (2019). Household prices are about 17% cheaper than in the US, whereas industrial prices are around 32% higher. Large discrepancies can be found from province to province in taxes applied, with high rates in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward ...

  • Energy Consumption

    At 8 toe, Canada's per capita energy consumption is among the highest in the world and almost triple the average EU level. Electricity consumption per capita is around 14 500 kWh.

    Total energy consumption has been increasing slightly since 2010 (1.3%/year on average at normal climate), reaching 301 Mtoe in 2019.

    Together, oil and gas represent more than two thirds of total ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    CER released its long-term energy outlook for 2040. The report shows that crude oil and natural gas production continues to increase, reaching 7 mb/d and 566 mcm/d (206 bcm/year), respectively. Natural gas and renewables will be used to displace coal-fired electricity generation that will be phased out by 2030. As a result, wind and solar are expected to represent 10% of the power mix in ...
