Engagement on Canada’s 2030 Emission Reduction Plan


The questions included in the engagement survey are constructed in a way that invites agreement and plays on emotional biases. We encourage you to provide honest feedback that outlines how:

1. Canadians are the best in the world at energy

Canadian oil and gas standards are some of the most strict in the world. Demand for oil and gas is increasing, and if Canadian producers are unable to maintain production, then the production will occur in another part of the world where emission levels are not restrained.

Here are some articles that provide context for this important conversation:

  • ESG leadership – a recently released Canada West Foundation report identified that 100 percent of Canada’s top oil and gas producers have public ESG reports or metrics, compared to 33 percent of commercial-scale wind and solar companies. Further, among the top 20 oil producing nations, Canada ranks:
    • 2nd in Governance – Worldwide Governance Indicators
    • 2nd in Social Progress – Social Progress Index
    • 4th in Environment – Environmental Performance Index

2. Oil and gas saves lives

Our society relies on the stability of our energy systems. The miracle of hydrocarbons allows for schools, hospitals, businesses, and Canadian homes to confidently operate every single day without the danger of rolling blackouts, debilitating energy price spikes, and general anarchy. Here are some articles that provide context for this important conversation:

3. Oil and gas makes life better

Global energy scarcity and energy poverty exist on a massive scale. Instead of denying people the opportunity for a better life, we need to focus on how Canadian energy is already the best in the world. For 2030 goals, the government must take the human quality of life into consideration. The discussion about Canadian oil and gas net-zero targets needs to be balanced by Canadian ethics and morality, and our reputation for being a positive force for good in the world.

Don’t Forget: 

Canadians can be proud of the emphasis that we are placing on developing carbon technology, which is widely accepted as one of the most effective and most scientifically ratified solutions for reaching net-zero.
