The Canadian Electricity Association released a fantastic report that outlines the Canadian energy strategy and the role of electricity. The report gives a series of seven recommendations and continues into infrastructure investment, diversification and powering the future of innovation in the industry.
“Electricity is the backbone of Canada’s energy system, powering our economy as well as our homes, offices and lifestyles. It is the engine of economic growth for manufacturing, mining, energy and industries across the country. A balanced Canadian energy strategy needs to emphasize the role of electricity.”

“Electricity is essential to our lives at home and at work, and to our prosperity as a nation. Canada’s sophisticated and reliable electricity system has attracted investment and given Canadian industries a competitive advantage by delivering clean and affordable electricity. It is also a sector that supports 108,000 jobs in communities across the country. Electricity is an enabler for every other sector in the economy and an essential input for growth in energy, manufacturing, mining and emerging clean technology sectors”
