Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

CPA will be attending the Energy and Mines Ministers’ Conference (EMMC), an annual gathering of federal, provincial and territorial ministers responsible for energy and mining portfolios August 13-14, 2017. At this meeting, ministers will discuss shared priorities for collaborative action to advance energy and mining development across the country. On the agenda: Clean Growth Session with stakeholders and Indigenous leaders and representatives, Women in Natural Resource Development and the Future of Energy and Mining.
The CPA will also participate in the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, the Canadian Electricity Association, the Canadian Gas Association, and the Energy Council of Canada initiative to improve the engagement opportunity with stakeholders at the EMMC. To engage most Energy Ministers, this initiative has identified five issues for discussion:
1. Ensuring the competitiveness of Canada’s energy sector and the competitiveness of companies that use energy commodities and energy services;
2. Positioning the energy industry in the evolving Canada – U.S. energy relationship;
3. Fostering innovation to cost-effectively drive further improved environmental performance of the energy system;
4. Moving ahead on major energy projects; and,
5. Furthering the dialogue on the future process for assessment of environmental and other impacts associated with major energy projects.
Expected outcomes include a better understanding on the part of Canada’s energy ministers about the industry’s views and recommendations on important energy issues and a way forward to address them. The CPA team is developing concrete actions to present during this dialogue.  For more information or if you have any questions or comments, please contact Nathalie St-Pierre at
