Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, Amarjeet Sohi, together with Canada's Minister of International Trade Diversification, Jim Carr, have announced more than $1.6 billion to support jobs and workers in Canada's oil and gas sector as Canada seeks to diversify export markets for its resources beyond the United States.

Canada is a place where the environment and the economy go hand in hand. Providing a stable, effective regulatory regime to approve and oversee pipeline operations is integral to safeguarding the environment, while supporting projects in the national interest that create good jobs, strengthen and grow the middle class and help get Canada's resources to world markets will deliver economic benefits for all Canadians.
As Canada transitions to a low-carbon future, investments in clean technology will support jobs for the middle class and improve clean air by reducing pollution.
Canada continues to garner international respect as a trusted global leader, committed to clean energy, gender equality, innovation and energy security. Building on these strengths, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Jim Carr, held productive discussions with international counterparts in Paris over the past two days at the International Energy Agency (IEA) Ministerial meeting.
Generation Energy has helped launch Canada on its way to a stronger economy, healthier communities and a more sustainable future for generations to come.
The Government of Canada has made it a priority to engage with Canadians, including Indigenous peoples, and hear their views on proposed major projects. This engagement is vital in order to restore the public's trust in Government decision-making processes.
The development of our natural resources creates middle-class jobs, spurs innovation and contributes to the quality of life of Canadians.
Federal, Provincial and Territorial Energy and Mines Ministers agree to collaborate on priorities for the upcoming year
Public trust in the sustainable development of natural resources is essential to moving resource projects forward, creating jobs and regional economic development opportunities, and transitioning towards a low-carbon economy.
Clean energy and energy efficiency are critical to building new jobs for Canadians and reducing costs for Canadian businesses and homes, as part of Canada's commitment to strengthening the clean growth economy and protecting the environment, both at home and abroad.
