Event Description

Lower oil prices, emissions regulation, clean technology, and new governments have led to significant changes for the oil and gas industry and the Canadian economy. Join us for an in-depth discussion regarding the outlook and key ESG factors impacting a major segment of the Canadian stock market.

  • Is there a place for oil sands in the world’s energy future?
  • What is the impact of different carbon pricing schemes?
  • What is the impact of new technologies and industry improvements?
  • What role can investors play?
