Canada: The Building of an Energy Nation
As much of the developed world struggles with high unemployment and massive public debt burdens, Canada is faced with a unique and unprecedented opportunity. Across the country, energy megaprojects involving oil, gas and hydroelectricity, financed by the private sector, could create more than one million jobs over the next two decades. This will strengthen and diversify our energy markets for long-term growth and wealth creation, all while still maintaining one of the lowest debt-to-GDP ratios in the world. Jim Prentice explores this new era of nation-building for Canada, the challenges we face, and positive ways for both governments and industry to turn those challenges into unprecedented opportunity.
